Title: The mind and the machine: Philosophical aspects of artificial intelligence

The mind and the machine: Philosophical aspects of artificial intelligence What light do current developments in computing shed on philosophical and psychological understanding of the human mind. A group of authors from philosophy, artificial intelligence, linguistics, psychology, and computing provide answers in one of the first texts to bring together a wide range of disciplines into a single area of general international concern. Drawing heavily on current research, the topics discussed are relevant to the growth of public interest in artificial intelligence, expert systems, and fifth generation computers. Topics considered include thought experiments and conceptual investigations, remarks on the language of thought, machines and mind: the functional sphere and epistemological circles, machines, self-control and internationality, linguistic theory, computational models of reasoning, a computer scientist's view of meaning, and learning as a non-deterministic but exact logical process.
