Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This program is part of a series that examines the nature of the mind. Is intelligence located in the mind or in the brain? Are the mind and the brain one entity? Or does the mind exist independently of its bodily component, the brain? Can science, creator of artificial intelligence and computers, ever truly replicate the intelligence of a human being? Scholar John Searle explores the issue, looking at phenomena that are unique to human intelligence, such as will, intentionality, and morality.
