Ascribing Mental Qualities to Machines


John McCarthy

Philosophical Perspectives in Artificial Intelligence, pages 161-195
Harvester Studies in Cognitive Science,  1979
Harvester Press, Brighton
Martin Ringle (eds.)

Ascribing mental qualities like beliefs, intentions and wants to a machine is sometimes correct if done conservatively and is sometimes necessary to express what is known about its state. We propose some new definitional tools for this: definitions relative to an approximate theory and second order structural definitions.
