A well-informed yet highly readable polemic against the equation of brains with computers. There are four main points: the chief creators of modern computers did not see them as thinking machines; brain research has not reduced thinking to physics; psychology cannot be quantified; materialistic theories of mind must always be woefully incomplete. All this adds up to a lucid case for mind-body dualism. 316 pp.
