...Searle John Searle: Welcome, Sir Rene Descartes. I went through your work Meditations on First Philosophy, but I do not agree with your theory of dualism because you say that mind and body are different entities. It is impossible to prove because mind is unreal. Rene Descartes: John Searle, my argument is based upon my thoughts. I am thinking, so I exist. See, my thought or the process of thinking proves that I am real and I exist. Why you people consider mind and body as a single unit? How can you prove that mind and body are same? I can prove that mind and body are different entities. At the same time, mind and body influence each other. Searle: We... ? Debate from the point of view of Descartes and...

Oxford: Oxford Press Introduction As has been noted, it is right to allege that some of the most indispensable technique that philosophy applies is still the cause of its major problems in application. Searle (1998) in his book poses a brief introductory indeed. The main reason that could be given to explain this might be based on the fact that the book goes beyond introducing the user to a philosophical subject that is very catching and this he does in a very clear and accessible language. One would argue that Searle is more ambitious in his brief introduction when he argues that there is...

...? Can Computers Think? Computers are machines that were invented to simplify work done by humans in all aspects of life. Computerswere designed to help simplify tasks that too long to complete due to their complexity and time consuming attributes. Computers use technology to simplify tasks that would otherwise take the human brain and ability hours or even days to conclude. Computers use advanced mathematical algorithms to complete tasks and evaluate data. Computers function is through a series of commands that are part of the software that is inbuilt to run their hardware. Computers have revolutionized the way that things are done in the day-to-day running of things in the world... Can Computers Think? ...

However, Searle points out that the basis of the strength and precision of computer is not the brain but the programs, which have been installed in the computer. This means that computers have cognitive states, which are much stronger and accurate compared to that of a human being.

...Searle’s Case against Artificial Intelligence: ‘Only a Machine Could Think’ Introduction Searle’s (1980) reply to the query “Could a machine think?” by saying, “… only a machine could think” (p. 417, 431) could be easily misconstrued to mean that Searle’s reply is affirmative. Yet, further examination of his reply would show that he is in fact strongly saying otherwise – a stance that has triggered varied counter reactions until now. Though Searle’s replies may not be strong enough to have sufficiently pinned down the persisting claim of functionalism and computationalism that machines/computers can fully think, his argument nonetheless has continually put Artificial Intelligence (AI) under... ?John...
