Example text

Mary Shelley shows us the extent to which scientific advances such as the work of Darwin and the discovery of electricity had convinced even nonscientists that the workings of nature were not divine secrets, but could be broken down and understood systematically. Frankenstein’s monster is not the product of shamanistic incantations or unspeakable transactions with the underworld: it is assembled from separately “manufactured” components and infused with the vital force of electricity. Although nineteenth-century science was inadequate to realize the goal of understanding and creating a fully intelligent agent, it affirmed the notion that the mysteries of life and intellect might be brought into the light of scientific analysis.

Whether these systems can ultimately be made to exhibit the flexibility shown by a living organism is still the subject of much debate. Nobel laureate Herbert Simon has argued that much of the originality and variability of behavior shown by living creatures is due to the richness of their environment rather than the complexity of their own internal programs. In The Sciences of the Artificial, Simon (1981) describes an ant progressing circuitously along an uneven and cluttered stretch of ground.

Rather than affirming as “real” the world of clear and distinct ideas, empiricists continue to remind us that “nothing enters the mind except through the senses”. This constraint leads to further questions of how the human can possibly perceive general concepts or the pure forms of Plato’s cave (Plato 1961). Aristotle was an early empiricist, emphasizing in his De Anima the limitations of the human perceptual system. More modern empiricists, especially Hobbes, Locke, and Hume, emphasize that knowledge must be explained through an introspective but empirical psychology.
