Parsing the Turing Test: Philosophical and Methodological Issues in the Quest for the Thinking Computer
Parsing the Turing Test: Philosophical and Methodological Issues in the Quest for the Thinking Computer
Parsing the Turing Test is a landmark 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...
Understanding Consciousness: Second Edition
Understanding Consciousness: Second Edition
Consciousness is personal. Indeed it is so close to the core of our being that it has puzzled thinkers from the beginnings of recorded history. What is it? What does it do? How does it relate to the physical world and to the workings of our bodies and brains? At the dawn of the new millennium answers to these questions are beginning to emerge....
Consciousness Explained
Consciousness Explained
Consciousness is notoriously difficult to explain. On one hand, there are facts about conscious experience--the way clarinets sound, the way lemonade tastes--that we know subjectively, from the inside. On the other hand, such facts are not readily accommodated in the objective world described by science. How, after all, could the reediness of...
Robot Brains: Circuits and Systems for Conscious Machines
Robot Brains: Circuits and Systems for Conscious Machines
Haikonen envisions autonomous robots that perceive and understand the world directly, acting in it in a natural human-like way without the need of programs and numerical representation of information. By developing higher-level cognitive functions through the power of artificial associative neuron architectures, the author approaches the issues of...
The Computer and the Brain (The Silliman Memorial Lectures Series)
The Computer and the Brain (The Silliman Memorial Lectures Series)
With a foreword by Paul M. Churchland and Patricia S. ChurchlandThis book represents the views of one of the greatest mathematicians of the twentieth century on the analogies between computing machines and the living human brain. John von Neumann concludes that the brain operates in part digitally, in part analogically, but uses a peculiar...
Mathematical Models of Spoken Language
Mathematical Models of Spoken Language
Humans use language to convey meaningful messages to each other. Linguistic competence consists in the ability to express meaning reliably, not simply to obtain faithful lexical transcriptions. This invaluable reference tool is the product of many years' experience and research on language and speech technology. It presents the motivations for,...
Persons, Souls and Death: A Philosophical Investigation of an Afterlife
Persons, Souls and Death: A Philosophical Investigation of an Afterlife

Awareness of mortality is the price of intelligent consciousness. This book argues that a person is essentially an immaterial subject of conscious states who, though intimately linked by causal ties to the body, is nevertheless distinct from it. The book also examines apparently paranormal occurrences supporting the belief that some persons...

The Physical Nature of Consciousness (Advances in Consciousness Research)
The Physical Nature of Consciousness (Advances in Consciousness Research)

The Physical Nature of Consciousness contains twelve chapters that discuss recent and new perspectives on the relation between modern physics and consciousness.
Stuart Hameroff opens with an extended and updated exposition of the Penrose/Hameroff Orch-OR model, and subsequently addresses recent criticisms of quantum approaches

Artificial Mind System: Kernel Memory Approach (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
Artificial Mind System: Kernel Memory Approach (Studies in Computational Intelligence)

This book is written from an engineer's perspective of the mind. "Artificial Mind System" exposes the reader to a broad spectrum of interesting areas in general brain science and mind-oriented studies. In this research monograph a picture of the holistic model of an artificial mind system and its behaviour is drawn, as concretely as...

Radical Embodied Cognitive Science (Bradford Books)
Radical Embodied Cognitive Science (Bradford Books)
While philosophers of mind have been arguing over the status of mental representations in cognitive science, cognitive scientists have been quietly engaged in studying perception, action, and cognition without explaining them in terms of mental representation. In this book, Anthony Chemero describes this nonrepresentational approach (which he terms...
The Crucible of Consciousness: An Integrated Theory of Mind and Brain
The Crucible of Consciousness: An Integrated Theory of Mind and Brain
There are lots of books on consciousness being published these days, and I end up skimming most of them and reading a few of them. Reading somebody else’s take on the whole set of issues is often frustrating and depressing: they just don’t get it. Other times it is tantalizing; they start on the right foot, in other words, where I...
Persuasive Imagery: A Consumer Response Perspective (Advertising and Consumer Psychology Series )
Persuasive Imagery: A Consumer Response Perspective (Advertising and Consumer Psychology Series )
From Bill Moyers to Marshall McLuhan to Raymond Williams, cultural observers of the late 20th century have charged the images of consumer culture with profound effects on life and consciousness. In tones of utter certainty, critics like these have warned of the deleterious effects persuasive commercial imagery has on the human mind, the collective...
