Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the well-known article by Alan Turing (1950) featured in the journal Mind, philosophers of mind were able to assume a crucial role in the emergence and development of artificial intelligence. The key words in introducing the problem of consciousness are "physicalism" and "reductionism". The conceptual pair central to Frank Jackson's reflection distinguishes itself from the conceptual pair introduced by Thomas Nagel insofar as it makes reference to technical terms. While the hypothesis of the extended mind represents the last of a series of objections that were made to the "dominant paradigm" specifically, to the way of conceiving mental states as causal-functional states, which is characteristic of this paradigm the sensorimotor paradigm opposes the "dominant" paradigm in another aspect, that is because of the way in which it conceives perception and, in more general terms, the architecture of the mind in which perception is integrated.

Keywords: Alan Turing; dominant paradigm; Frank Jackson; physicalism; reductionism; sensorimotor paradigm; Thomas Nagel
