Philosophical Psychology 11 (2):243 – 250 (1998)
John Haugeland's Mind design and Mind design II are organized around the idea that the fundamental idea of cognitive science is that, “intelligent beings are semantic engines — in other words, automatic formal systems with interpretations under which they consistently make sense”. The goal of artificial intelligence research, or the problem of “mind design” as Haugeland calls it, is to develop computers that are in fact semantic engines. This paper canvasses the changes in artificial intelligence research reflected in the different selections of essays found in each volume. While Mind design II is a worthy successor to Mind design, there are some notable developments in artificial intelligence which suggest that seemingly intelligent behavior need not be guided by semantic engines at all.
