Interviews with Twenty Eminent Cognitive Scientists
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.

Twenty leading researchers address this and other vexing questions in the fields that make up cognitive science.

What Reviewers Are Saying

They were clearly successful."--"Choice"
