Cognitive Science (computer model of the mind): the relation of the mind to the brain is like that of a program to the hardware.
SearleVsCognition: brain = computer?: not the question - mind = program? No! - Simulation possible: Yes! - Mind has an intrinsical mental content and is therefore not a program.
I 226
Church Thesis: Simulation on computer is possible if divisible into steps - Searle: if mind were like weather there would be no problem.
I 242
SearleVsCognitivism: syntax (or 0 and 1) has no causal powers - (unlike e.g. viruses, photosynthesis, etc.) - People follow rules consciously: that would be a causal explanation - Computer has no intentional causation.
I 251/52
VsCognition: much too high level of abstraction- the brain does not process information, but carries out chemical processes - do not confuse the model with reality.
