Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Can conscious machines be created, and if so, what does that imply for being human? Extending a paper written in high school, Sternberg (neuroscience and philosophy major, Brandeis U.) offers an accessible introduction to the philosophical issues surrounding such questions. Through interesting thought experiments and examples, he defends his negative position. Photos include a cute furry robot, and a chess champion being defeated by IBM's Deep Blue computer.
