Is `artificial intelligence' a contradiction in terms? Could computers (in principle) model every aspect of the mind, including logic, language, and emotion? What of the more brain-like, connectionist computers: could they really understand, even if digital computers cannot? This collection of classic and contemporary readings (which includes an editor's introduction and an up-to-date reading list) provides a clearly signposted pathway into hotly disputed philosophical issues at the heart of artificial intelligence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`A well-timed publication - adding to previous collections in Philosophy of Mind/Philosophical Psychology.' K.A. Markham, University of Wales College of Cardiff
`This volume will be of interest to philosophers working in the fields of AI and the philosophy of mind, and to cognitive scientists generally ... It would make an acceptable textbook for advanced undergraduates or postgraduate courses in the philosophy of AI. As one has come to expect from this publisher, the book is beautifully presented.' Australasian Journal of Philosophy
`A most valuable anthology both for philosophers and practitioners of artificial intelligence.' Dr Paul Tomassi, University of Edinburgh
Excellent collection of 15 essays dealing with the intersection of AI, cognitive science, and philosophy ... this volume of (with one exception) previously published papers would be welcome in any graduate or upper-division undergraduate course on the theoretical foundations of AI. * Minds and Machines *
