The case against adolescence : rediscovering the adult in every teen by Robert Epstein( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking book argues that adolescence is an unnecessary period of life that people are better off without. Robert Epstein, former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, shows that teen turmoil is caused by outmoded systems put into place a century ago which destroyed the continuum between childhood and adulthood. Where this continuum still exists in other countries, there is no adolescence. Isolated from adults, American teens learn everything they know from their media-dominated peers?! @the last people on earth they should be learning from,? says Epstein. Epstein explains that our teens are highly capable?in some ways more capable than adults?and argues strongly against ?infantilizing? young people. We must rediscover ?the adult in every teen,? he says, by giving young people adult authority and responsibility as soon as they can demonstrate readiness. This landmark book will change the thinking about teens for decades to come

Parsing the turing test : philosophical and methodological issues in the quest for the thinking computer by Robert Epstein( Book )

25 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Parsing the Turing Test is an exploration of both the philosophical and methodological issues surrounding the search for true artificial intelligence. Will computers and robots ever think and communicate the way humans do? When a computer crosses the threshold into self-consciousness, will it immediately jump into the Internet and create a World Mind? Will intelligent computers someday recognize the rather doubtful intelligence of human beings? Psychologists, computer scientists, philosophers, and programmers from around the world debate these issues in this volume."--Jacket
