Publisher Description:
This book collects the most influential recent essay dealing with a new approach to understanding the mind--some searching for basic principles, others exploring theoretical implications, still others attacking the whole idea."Mind Design" is conceived as a sequel to Alan Ross Anderson's "Minds and Machines" (1964), augmenting it and bringing it up to date. It is intended not only for professionals in the cross-disciplinary areas of philosophy, psychology, artificial intelligence and computer science, and the cognitive and neuroscience generally; it is also designed as a student book for such courses as Philosophy of Psychology, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy of Science, Basics of Cognitive Science, Issues in Artificial Intelligence--not to mention such general-interest, popular courses as Minds and Machines, Computers and Society.Contents: "Semantic Engines: An Introduction to Mind Design, " John C.
