Selection 3.2: Republic—Plato and Selection 3.4: Meno—Plato in Ch. 3 of Philosophy: The Power of Ideas Imagine philosophers René Descartes and John Searle were in a room discussing the mind–body question. How might their conversation sound? What important elements of the question might they discuss? How might their conversation develop? Create a 700- to 1,050-word dialogue of the mind–body debate from the point of view of Descartes and Searle. Each character must present and critique arguments. Each character’s position must be identifiable. The dialogue does not need to have a final resolution. Include the following issues: Is the mind independent of the body? Is the mind more than the electrical impulses generated by the brain? Descartes believed we can doubt the existence of physical matter, including our bodies, but we cannot deny our conscious minds. Searle believes the mind is a rule-based information processing system. Are the mind and body two separate entities, or are they dependent on each other? Conclude with a 350- to 700-word summary of the dialogue and response. Discuss how your own views relate to the mind–body debate ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Presentation Consider the possible future of artificial intelligence. Create a bill of rights based on your predictions for the future of artificial intelligence. Introduce the following topic as a philosophical question: If we were able to determine if a machine has self-awareness, would that machine have rights? What ethical criteria or definition of thinking would be required to qualify for these rights? For example, is Bicentennial Man or the character of Lieutenant Commander Data on the television show Star Trek: The Next Generation a realistic possibility? If so, do these mechanical beings deserve to be called life forms and treated as life forms with inalienable rights? Do intelligent beings have free will? Present your bill of rights in a 15- to 20-slide MicrosoftÂŽ PowerPointÂŽ presentation in a 15 minute oral presentation
