Few developments in the intellectual life of the past quarter-century have provoked more controversy than the attempt to engineer humanlike intelligence by artificial means. Born of computer science, this effort has sparked a continuing debate among the psychologists, neuroscientists, philosophers, and linguists who have pioneered - and criticized - Artificial Intelligence. Are there general principles, as some computer scientists had originally hoped, that would fully describe the activity of both animal and machine minds, just as aerodynamics accounts for the flight of birds and airplanes? Twenty leading researchers address this and other vexing questions in the fields that make up cognitive science.

"The authors' goal was not simply to produce another text that serves to introduce cognitive science but rather to give readers a feeling of the excitement of the field by helping them understand the personal commitment of these researchers and their connections to the work and thoughts of others in the field. They were clearly successful."--"Choice"
