David Bentley Hart on artificial intelligence

Of interest to all, but perhaps especially to those in Huenemann’s Philosophy of Mind course:

David Bentley Hart explains why the mind is not like a  computer and why mind and its activities cannot be reduced to material processes.

Here is a longer treatment.

Hat tip to USU alum Cam Davis for this link.

About Kleiner

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.

    It’s a good expression of Searle’s “Chinese Room” argument (which we’ll be discussing in class in a couple of weeks). And if one insists that intensionality can result only from some mysterious sort of consciousness that is available only to humans, it’s a compelling argument.
