John R. Searle is the author of many interesting books, including Intentionality, and also Minds, Brains, and Science. How do we reconcile common sense and science? This is why we present the ebook compilations in this website. For a variety of reasons many philosophers today are reluctant to tackle such big problems.
John R. Searle 56 Estimated H-index: View Paper. Add to Collection. This article can be viewed as an attempt to explore the consequences of two propositions. These two propositions have the following consequences 3 The explanation of how the brain produces intentionality cannot be that it does it by instantiating a computer program.
Discussion of Searle's case against strong AI has usually focused upon his Chinese Room thought-experiment. In this paper, however, I expound and then try to refute what I call his abstract argument against strong AI, an argument which turns upon quite general considerations concerning programs, syntax, and semantics, and which seems not to depend on intuitions about the Chinese Room. I claim that this argument fails, since it assumes one particular account of what a program is. I suggest an alternative account which, however, cannot play a role in a Searle-type argument, and argue that Searle gives no good reason for favoring his account, which allows the abstract argument to work, over the alternative, which doesn't. This response to Searle's abstract argument also, incidentally, enables the Robot Reply to the Chinese Room to defend itself against objections Searle makes to it.

Minds, Brains and Science
The Chinese room argument holds that a digital computer executing a program cannot be shown  to have a " mind ", " understanding " or " consciousness ", [a] regardless of how intelligently or human-like the program may make the computer behave. The argument was first presented by philosopher John Searle in his paper, "Minds, Brains, and Programs", published in Behavioral and Brain Sciences in It has been widely discussed in the years since. The argument is directed against the philosophical positions of functionalism and computationalism ,  which hold that the mind may be viewed as an information-processing system operating on formal symbols, and that simulation of a given mental state is sufficient for its presence.

Minds, Brains, And Programs
- Вечером в субботу. - Нет, - сказала Мидж. - Насколько я знаю Стратмора, это его дела.
Тогда вы наверняка ее видели. Это совсем молоденькая девушка. Лет пятнадцати-шестнадцати. Волосы… - Не успев договорить, он понял, что совершил ошибку. Кассирша сощурилась. - Вашей возлюбленной пятнадцать лет.
- Ну, что еще - до того как вы отправитесь домой. В одно мгновение Сьюзан все стало ясно. Когда Стратмор загрузил взятый из Интернета алгоритм закодированной Цифровой крепости и попытался прогнать его через ТРАНСТЕКСТ, цепная мутация наткнулась на фильтры системы Сквозь строй. Горя желанием выяснить, поддается ли Цифровая крепость взлому, Стратмор принял решения обойти фильтры. В обычных условиях такое действие считалось бы недопустимым.
