PHIL 477 - Minds, Machines, and Logic (3)


This course looks closely at the computational theory of mind, which holds that the human mind is a mechanical device that translates experience into representations and then operates on these representations according to their mechanical properties in order to produce thought and behavior. Topics to be considered in evaluating this theory include: the nature of intentionality and representation, the nature and limits of models, the coherence of self-reference, the ambiguity of rules, and the social dimension of concepts. Recommended Preparation: One 300-level course in philosophy, especially PHIL 371 , PHIL 373 , or PHIL 380 .
