Abstract

In this paper, the Author reviewed the typical objections against the claim that brains are com­puters, or, to be more precise, information-processing mechanisms. By showing that practi­cally all the popular objections are based on uncharitable (or simply incorrect) interpretations of the claim, he argues that the claim is likely to be true, relevant to contemporary cognitive (neuro) science, and non-trivial.
