What is mind? Is it a property attributable to biological functionality alone, and, in particular, arising from the morphology of the mammalian brain and/or the influence of that animal’s body? How far down the evolutionary scale can we apply terms like cognition, consciousness, and intelligence? Are we capable of engineering artificial minds?
Participants include John Krakauer, Gary Marcus, Ken Miller, David Rosenthal, and Matthew Stone.
