Mind As Machine: A history of Cognitive Science

I'm reading the criticism [1] [2] [3] to the book to the book "Mind As Machine: A history of Cognitive Science" (Vols 1-2) and replicas [4] has given its author, Margaret a.. Boden.

Some scientific celebrity sometimes entertains. Although this controversy is already a bit old.

One of the replicas that has made Margaret I love:

"If, as is often said but very rarely explicitly argued, mind can arise only in living things, then A-Life is theoretically—and perhaps even technologically—prior to a successful AI and/or computational psychology... If anything like this is correct, then A-Life is not merely a form of (“strong”) AI, but part of its foundations."

Entertaining reading.
