Summary "This book surveys the most famous philosophical arguments against building a machine with human-level intelligence. From claims and counter-claims about the ability to implement consciousness, rationality, and meaning to arguments about cognitive architecture, it presents a vivid history of the clash between philosophy and AI. With introductions to each war and further readings, this forward-looking book is packed with fresh insights and supporting material"-- Provided by publisher.
