Hello all and welcome to a brand new year of UMM Philosophy Club. This year promises to be just as full of exciting speakers, presentations, and good discussion as last. As an official club we now have funds in some amount to be determined. These funds could be put to use for anything from speakers or trips to pizza. Who really knows at this point? You do. Come to the informational meeting this Thursday at 8PM in the Humanities lounge. We would love to hear your ideas for topics or themes. Come and find out what Philosophy is about.

Do machines have qualitative experiences?

posted Mar 24, 2011, 1:22 PM by Lincoln Kirkeide   [ updated Mar 24, 2011, 1:28 PM ]

Hello all,

What: Philosophy Club
When: Thursday, March 24, 8 PM
Where: Humanities 105

This week we will consider a philosopher who answers "yes" to question
posed in the subject line.  This answer is a tough pill to swallow.
But in William Lycan's short and punchy paper, "Qualitative Experience
in Machines", gives a compelling argument for it.  Here is the link to
his, and many other great papers:
http://onthehuman.org/2009/10/qualitative-experience-in-machines/

Also, here's a link to Lycan's Wikipedia entry, with links to his
homepage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Lycan

So stop by for some interesting discussion!

Hello all and welcome to the new Philosophy Club website. This website will hopefully serve as a successful medium to provide information about Philosophy Club and Philosophy Division events on campus. Links to articles and videos relevant to Philosophy Club will be posted on this site. The creator of this site is still learning how to use Google sites so you can expect the number and the quality of the features on this website to increase exponentially in the upcoming weeks. For now enjoy this mugshot of Socrates...
