Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The information revolution is dramatically changing the world, and philosophy is no exception. Computer technology is changing the professional activities of philosophers, including how they do research, how they cooperate with each other, and how they teach their university courses. Most importantly, computers are having a significant impact upon foundational concepts in philosophy, such as the mind, consciousness, reasoning, logic, knowledge, truth and creativity. This important book, which results from a series of presentations at American Philosophical Association conferences, explores the major ways in which computers are changing philosophy.
