Brainstorms: Philosophical Essays on Mind and Psychology
Dennett, Daniel C. Brainstorms: Philosophical Essays on Mind and Psychology. [Montgomery, VT]: Bradford Books, 1978. (Try also MIT P.)
Fairly early on AI, but a relatively recent entry into the debate over Mechanism vs. Idealism (our formulation), from the approach of Materialism of the physicalist variety (see the entry for R. Descartes). Essays coll. include "Intentional Systems," "(B. F.) Skinner Skinned," "Artificial Intelligence as Philosophy and as Psychology," "Why You Can't Make a Computer that Feels Pain," and "Mechanism and Responsibility." No bibliography, but useful notes and index.
