Artificial Intelligence, Michael Sangray Apr 1999

Artificial Intelligence, Michael Sangray

Philosophy Undergraduate Theses

This paper explores the project of creating artificial intelligence (AI) by examining three relationships central to the project. The relationships are between mind and brain, syntax and semantics, and simulation and duplication. Proponents of AI have attempted to clarify each of these relationships as suits their interests rather than treating each relationship with the care they deserve. In doing so, much confusion and debate has developed surrounding all three relationships. In presenting my explanations and conclusions concerning these relationships, I hope to clear away the confusion and present a clear, plausible case against the project of artificial intelligence.

Mathematics Faculty Scholarship

Mathematics, as an academic discipline, has stood for many years as the last bastion against a growing tide of intellectual relativism that has become all but ubiquitous. More recently, however, efforts have been made to "humanize" mathematics by advocating a social-constructivist approach to the philosophy of mathematics, both in practice and education. This paper is intended to serve as a critical response to one advocate of this approach, Reuben Hersh (What Is Mathematics, Really?, 1997), and in the process a defense of Platonism.
