Mind Design II by John Haugeland

Book Description

Mind design is the endeavor to understand mind (thinking, intellect) in terms of its design (how it is built, how it works). Unlike traditional empirical psychology, it is more oriented toward the "how" than the "what." An experiment in mind design is more likely to be an attempt to build something and make it work -- as in artificial intelligence -- than to observe or analyze what already exists. Mind design is psychology by reverse engineering. When Mind Design was first published in 1981, it became a classic in the then-nascent fields of cognitive science and AI. 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. The contributors are divided about evenly between philosophers and scientists. Yet all are "philosophical" in that they address fundamental issues and concepts; and all are "scientific" in that they are technically sophisticated and concerned with concrete empirical research.

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

Having Thought by John Haugeland Having Thought, Paperback (September 2000)

The unifying theme of these 13 essays is understanding, where the interdependence between personality and intelligence is developed and explained, specifically in the conditions of the possibility of objective scientific knowledge.
