Title: Filosofia da mente e ciência da informação informação
Issue Date: 2013-11-26
Abstract: In order to explore the relations between science of information and philosophy of mind, I start by identifying the problems of philosophy of mind (the core problem and a number of specific problems, concerning the natures of representation, consciousness, action and personhood). I then analyse a mainstream answer to such problems, RCTM (the representational-computational theory of mind) (Fodor 1975) and go through some historical landmarks in the development of the discipline since the 1950s, in particular thought experiments such as the Turing Test (Turing 1950) and the Chinese Room (Searle 1980). Finally, referring to the work of David Chalmers (Chalmers 1996), I end by briefly discussing the challenge posed by information where it concerns the core problem of philosophy of mind, the problem of the relations between (concious) mind and (physical) world.
