Artificial intelligence : the very idea by John Haugeland( Book )

67 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 1,646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Machines who think -- how utterly preposterous," huff beleaguered humanists, defending their dwindling turf. "Artificial Intelligence -- it's here and about to surpass our own," crow techno-visionaries, proclaiming dominion. It's so simple and obvious, each side maintains, only a fanatic could disagree.Deciding where the truth lies between these two extremes is the main purpose of John Haugeland's marvelously lucid and witty book on what artificial intelligence is all about. Although presented entirely in non-technical terms, it neither oversimplifies the science nor evades the fundamental philosophical issues. Far from ducking the really hard questions, it takes them on, one by one.Artificial intelligence, Haugeland notes, is based on a very good idea, which might well be right, and just as well might not. That idea, the idea that human thinking and machine computing are "radically the same," provides the central theme for his illuminating and provocative book about this exciting new field. After a brief but revealing digression in intellectual history, Haugeland systematically tackles such basic questions as: What is a computer really? How can a physical object "mean" anything? What are the options for computational organization? and What structures have been proposed and tried as actual scientific models for intelligence?In a concluding chapter he takes up several outstanding problems and puzzles -- including intelligence in action, imagery, feelings and personality -- and their enigmatic prospects for solution
The road since Structure : philosophical essays, 1970-1993, with an autobiographical interview by Thomas S Kuhn( Book )

18 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 802 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Divided into three parts, this is a record of the new direction the author was taking during the last two decades of his life. The first part of the book consists of essays in which he refines the basic concepts set forth in his novel Structure--paradigm shifts, incommensurability, and the nature of scientific progress. In the second part, he replies to many of the criticisms of his earlier work. And the third part of the volume is the transcript of a biographical interview with him conducted in Athens in 1995, not quite a year before his death. Here, the usually reticent author discusses his own intellectual development--his upbringing and thoughts about his education, the influence of his training as a physicist, his war work, his reelations with ihs colleagues, the responses to Structure--and his struggle to define his philosophical position before and after that work.

Having thought : essays in the metaphysics of mind by John Haugeland( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thirteen essays collected here are all, in one way or another, about understanding: What is it? What does it take to have it? What does it presuppose in what can be understood? In the first group of essays, under the heading Mind, the questions are more specifically about intelligence: First, how can intelligence itself be understood scientifically (as in "cognitive science"); and second, how can the scientific endeavor, so conceived, account for the possibility of a self or subject that understands? Under the second head, Matter, the focus turns to the metaphysical issues surrounding the intelligibility of the mental as a distinctive and irreducible phenomenon in a universe that is, in some sense, ultimately material. The third group of essays, Meaning, addresses the pivotal topics of representation and intentionality, with particular emphasis on the diversity of possibilities - including those that are not symbolic and not internal. The final group, headed Truth, contains the most recent essays. Here the earlier themes come together around the fundamental problem of the metaphysics of mind: What is objective knowledge, and how is it possible? The answer, broached in an exploratory way, amounts to a contemporary revival of transcendental constitution - an idea prominent in the history of philosophy, but largely absent from the recent literature

Being in the world : [a philosophical guide to a meaningful life]( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years after graduating with a degree in philosophy from UC Berkeley, filmmaker Tao Ruspoli returned to visit his one-time professor, world-renowned philosopher Hubert Dreyfus. That visit led to meetings with a whole generation of philosophers whom Dreyfus had taught, which subsequently sparked the inspiration for this film. Being in the World raises the question of whether we have forgotten what it means to be truly human in today's technological age, and proceeds to answer this question by taking a journey around the world to meet a whole host of remarkable individuals, including Manuel Molina, the legendary poet and flamenco master; Leah Chase, affectionately known as the Queen of Creole Cuisine; and Hiroshi Sakaguchi, a master carpenter from Japan. By showing how these modern day masters approach life from within their chosen fields, Ruspoli's film celebrates the ability of human beings to find meaning in the world through the mastery of physical, intellectual, and creative skills
