The Mind-Body problem is becoming more and more important as AI progresses to full intelligence, perhaps replacing some recruiters and programmers. In the last twelve months I have seen a post advertised requiring a PhD in Philosophy of Mind and expect such advertisements to become more common. More cogently ethical and legal issues concerning Robots and responsibility are being discussed in academic circles

There are two well known positions on the Mind-Body Problem: Physicalism, which says everything reduces to Physics and consciousness is therefore ultimately reducible to Physics, and Dualism which claims consciousness is not reducible to Physics and is entirely separate from Matter/Energy

Both these positions have arguments to refute them and there is no compelling evidence to select one in favour of the other though intuitively the fact a philosopher's Zombie is conceivable tends, to my mind, to favour Dualism. 

According to the Stanford Encyclopaedia of Philosophy the only solutions to the dilemma are Panpsychism, the notion that everything has a mind and Emergentism, the idea that somehow consciousness arises from interactions between inanimate objects. 

Both these solutions face problems but partly resolve the tension between Mind and Body.

The following article: Materialism, Dualism and Consciousness, explores the arguments against each position. The problems with Panpsychism will be explored in a further article.

Real gross domestic product increased at an annual rate of 1.2 percent in the second quarter of 2016. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 0.8 percent (revised).

If you arr not growing at a minimum of 5% a quarter you should be talking to me.

Howard:

The "YOU" blog post is not for advertising.  Rather, it's for things important to you ON  Brandergy.com.

For example, if you read the You post, you'll see that it currently has 15 elements to it.  The 14th element is the Community Advertising Page.  

You can advertise as much as you'd like there.  So, please move the ones you posted below to the Community Advertising Page, ok?  

The Community Advertising Page is located at this link:  http://brandergy.com/group/brandergy/page/community-advertising-page

"The most dangerous question a prospect or customer asks is "Why should I?" And he may ask it more than once... The product and its communication stream must continue to provide him with both rational and emotional answers." ~ Lester Wunderman
