Ascribing mental qualities to machines

In Martin Ringle (ed.), Philosophical Perspectives in Artificial Intelligence. Humanities Press (1979)
Abstract
Ascribing mental qualities like beliefs, intentions and wants to a machine is sometimes correct if done conservatively and is sometimes necessary to express what is known about its state. We propose some new definitional tools for this: definitions relative to an approximate theory and second order structural definitions
