Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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. Haugeland; Computer Science as Empirical Inquiry: Symbols and Search, Alan Newell and Herbert A. Simon; Complexity and the Study of Artificial and Human Intelligence, Zenon Pylyshyn; A Framework for Representing Knowledge, Marvin Minsky; Artificial Intelligence—A Personal View, David Marr; Artificial Intelligence Meets Natural Stupidity, Drew McDermott; From Micro-Worlds to Knowledge Representation: AI at an Impasse, Hubert L. Dreyfus; Reductionism and the Nature of Psychology, Hilary Putnam; Intentional Systems, Daniel C. Dennett; The Nature and Plausibility of Cognitivism, John C. Haugeland; Minds, Brains, and Programs, John R. Searle; Methodological Solipsism Considered as a Research Strategy in Cognitive Psychology, Jerry A. Fodor; The Material Mind, Donald Davidson.
