A Logical Hole the Chinese Room Avoids

Minds and Machines 21 (3):431-433 (2011)
Abstract
Searle’s Chinese room argument (CRA) was recently charged as being unsound because it makes a logical error. It is shown here that this charge is based on a misinterpretation of the modal scope of a major premise of the CRA and that the CRA does not commit the logical error with which it is charged
