When first published in 1972, Dreyfus' manifesto on the inherent inability of machines to mimic mental functions caused an uproar in the artificial intelligence community. For this edition of his now classic book, Dreyfus has added a lengthy new introduction outlining changes in AI and assessing the paradigms of connectionism and neural networks that have transformed the field.


Part 1 Ten years of research in artificial intelligence (1957-1967): phase I (1957-1962) cognitive simulation - analysis of work in language translation, problem solving, and pattern recognition, the underlying significance of failure to achieve predicted results; phase II (1962-1967) semantic information processing - analysis of semantic information processing programmes, significance of current difficulties. Part 2 Assumptions underlying persistent optimism: the biological assumption; the psychological assumption - empirical evidence for the psychological assumption - critique of the scientific methodology of cognitive simulation, "A Priori" arguments for the psychological assumptions; the epistemological assumption - a mistaken argument from the success of physics, a mistaken argument from the success of modern linguistics; the ontological assumption. Part 3 Alternatives to the traditional assumptions: the role of the body in intelligent behaviour; the situation - orderly behaviour without recourse to rulels; the situation as a function of human needs. Part 4 Conclusion - the scope and limits of artificial reason: the limits of artificial intelligence - the future of artificial intelligence.


Hubert L. Dreyfus is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California at Berkeley.
