Perhaps more than any other philosopher of mind, Ned Block synthesizes philosophical and scientific approaches to the mind; he is unique in moving back and forth across this divide, doing so with creativity and intensity. Over the course of his career, Block has made groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of intelligence, representation, and consciousness. Blockheads! (the title refers to Block\'s imaginary counterexample to the Turing test -- and to the Block-enthusiast contributors) offers eighteen new essays on Block\'s work along with substantive and wide-ranging replies by Block. The essays and responses not only address Block\'s past contributions but are rich with new ideas and argument. They importantly clarify many key elements of Block\'s work, including his pessimism concerning such thought experiments as Commander Data and the Nation of China; his more general pessimism about intuitions and introspection in the philosophy of mind; the empirical case for an antifunctionalist, biological theory of phenomenal consciousness; the fading qualia problem for a biological theory; the link between phenomenal consciousness and representation (especially spatial representation); and the reducibility of phenomenal representation.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:editor<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4880994865#Person\/pautz_adam<\/a>> ; # Adam Pautz<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4880994865<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4880994865#Series\/mit_press_ser<\/a>> ; # MIT Press Ser.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4880994865#Series\/the_mit_press_ser<\/a>> ; # The MIT Press Ser.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1029795446<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Blockheads! : essays on Ned Block\'s philosophy of mind and consciousness<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1035389398<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.7551\/mitpress\/9196.001.0001<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/cognet.mit.edu\/book\/blockheads<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=2007047<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/mitpress.mit.edu\/9780262038720<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5649568<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780262348973<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1035389398<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
