Having Thought by John Haugeland

Book Description

The unifying theme of these 13 essays is understanding. What is it? What does it take to have it? What does it presuppose in what can be understood? In this volumes first group of essays, John Haugeland addresses mind and intelligence. Intelligibility comes to the fore in a set of "metaphysical" pieces on analogue and digital systems and supervenience. In the third set of papers Haugeland elaborates on and then undermines common presuppositions about the foundational notions of intentionality and representation. Finally, the fourth and most recent group of essays confronts the character of understanding in relation to what is understood. The necessary interdependence between personality and intelligence is developed and explained, specifically in the conditions of the possibility of objective scientific knowledge.

Dasein Disclosed by John Haugeland Dasein Disclosed, Hardback (March 2013)

At his death in 2010, the Anglo-American analytic philosopher John Haugeland left an unfinished manuscript summarizing his life-long engagement with Heidegger's Being and Time. As illuminating as it is iconoclastic, Dasein Disclosed is not just Haugeland's Heidegger--this sweeping reevaluation is a major contribution to philosophy in its own right.

Road Since Structure by John Haugeland Road Since Structure, Paperback (December 2002)

"The road since structure", assembled with Kuhn's input before his death in 1996, follows the development of his thought through the later years of his life. Collected here are several essays and an extensive autobiographical interview discussing his life and philosophy

Mind Design II by John Haugeland Mind Design II, Paperback (April 1997)

This second edition retains four landmark essays from the first, adding to them one earlier milestone (Turing's "Computing Machinery and Intelligence") and eleven more recent articles about connectionism, dynamical systems, and symbolic versus nonsymbolic models.
