"In this clearly written and well organized work, Robinson aims to show that people are not wholly physical." --Choice "Robinson's negative argumentation against traditional and recent attacks on epiphenomenalism is great fun. Robinson writes very clearly and puts his position down plainly; even those who are sure that he is wrong will benefit from sharpening their wit against him... Robinson has interesting things to say." --Canadian Philosophical Review "Computers, Minds, and Robots is clearly written, carefully organized, well argued, and it covers the right topics." --Alex Orenstein, Professor of Philosophy, Queens College, C.U.N.Y.
