Objections to Computationalism: A Survey

Marcin Miłkowski


Zarzuty wobec komputacjonizmu — przegląd

W artykule Autor przyjrzał się typowym zastrzeżeniom przeciwko twierdzeniu, że mózgi to komputery, a ściślej — mechanizmy przetwarzania informacji. Pokazując, że praktycznie wszystkie popularne obiekcje są oparte na nieżyczliwych (lub po prostu niepoprawnych) interpretacjach tego twierdzenia, uznaje, że twierdzenie to prawdopodobnie będzie prawdziwe, istotne dla współczesnej (neuro)kognitywistyki i nietrywialne.

Słowa kluczowe

komputacjonizm; komputacjonalna teoria umysłu; reprezentacja; komputacja; modelowanie
