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,...
Devices of the Soul: Battling for Our Selves in an Age of Machines
Devices of the Soul: Battling for Our Selves in an Age of Machines
"Self-forgetfulness is the reigning temptation of the technological era. This is why we so readily give our assent to the absurd proposition that a computer can add two plus two, despite the obvious fact that it can do nothing of the sort--not if we have in mind anything remotely resembling what we do when we add numbers. In the computer's...

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....
Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics (The Frontiers Collection)
Mind, Matter and Quantum Mechanics (The Frontiers Collection)

"Scientists other than quantum physicists often fail to comprehend the enormity of the conceptual change wrought by quantum theory in our basic conception of the nature of matter," writes Henry Stapp. Stapp is a leading quantum physicist who has given particularly careful thought to the implications of the theory that lies at the heart...

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.

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)

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...
