About this book

Walmsley offers a succinct introduction to major philosophical issues in artificial intelligence for advanced students of philosophy of mind, cognitive science and psychology. Whilst covering essential topics, it also provides the student with the chance to engage with cutting edge debates.

About the authors

JOEL WALMSLEY is a Lecturer in Philosophy at University College Cork in Ireland. His research interests are in philosophy of cognitive science (especially concerning Artificial Intelligence and Dynamical Systems Theory), philosophy of science (especially concerning explanation) and philosophy of mind (especially concerning emergence and the 'extended mind' hypothesis). His previous works include Mind: Historical and Philosophical Introduction to the Major Theories (Hackett: 2006. Co-authored with A. Kukla).

Reviews

'This little gem of an introduction to the philosophy of artificial intelligence also serves brilliantly as an accessible and accurate survey of recent trends in cognitive science.' - Lawrence Shapiro, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA

'Walmsley's book is wonderfully engaging, compellingly argued, and admirably well informed. With succinct clarity, he covers all the essential approaches to AI. The cluster of questions he addresses illuminates the nature both of machines and of the thinking machines we humans are. His little book will make a terrific introduction to the Philosophy of Mind, whether as a course text or for any independent reader looking for a guide into the subject.' - Ronald de Sousa, University of Toronto, Canada
