    1. So far this is an absolutely fascinating study The authors -concerned with current theories for determing artificial intelligence- begin by identifying our "traditional approach" to science and scholarship based on rational inquiry, particularly the idea that we humans build and maintain cognitive maps of reality and then attempt to harmonize those maps with the world around them. They follow a Chilean neurobiologist named Humberto R. Maturana who sees the behavior of humans in terms of our "mec [...]


    2. Es un trabajo imprescindible para comprender que la tecnología informática es un modo de vivir comunicados y conectados que forma parte de nuestra vida cotidiana. No se trata de máquinas de cálculo ni de administración de información, sino de invenciones de posibilidades en conversaciones, que -ahora con la red- son masivas globales. Es destacable que 21 años después esta obra siga siendo destacada entre los estudiosos del fenómeno de la era digital y las redes.


    3. This is a great book! I will definitely read it again in the future. This book gives readers a brief overview of how scientists have been trying to understand the way people understand and learn, and why the theories and models they proposed might not be enough for explaining known human behaviors. The authors mention several theoretical standpoints that have been affecting how people design computing system for decades. I especially enjoy the discussion about what is communication and how langu [...]


    4. Book was given to me by one of my most important teachers Dr.Guim . Presents perspectives on what it is to be a robot as opposed a human in a world where robotics is well poised to replace humans in my areas of life . The state of intellect within which the spadework of the understanding of computer technology takes place. Its of a wider readership than just those curious about AI and computer design. Important and controversial new approach to understanding what computers do and how their funct [...]


    5. Even when the book came out, I thought to myself, "It doesn't really say anything".I can imagine a writer for a magazine could make use of the book to think of topics for tech pieces about the "future".A friend of mine gave me the book because he knew the authors, and wanted my take on it (as an A.I. developer). I wrote a quick program to spew out sentences that were similar to those in the book.


    6. This book has a big influence on how I think about cognition, though it took a long time to seep in. This book, in critiquing old fashioned, human-simulating AI, liberated me from aspiring to NLP AI and made it okay to do HCI. Copout by critique? Maybe. I prefer to think it's just not wasting your time on a fundamentally flawed approach. Thank you, Terry!


    7. A classic that merits reading despite its age. Winograd and Flores bring together philosophy, linguistics, and biology in order to illuminate the endeavor of computer science. This little book is dense but somehow manages to remain clear and readable by students of many different disciplines.


    8. The central messages of this classic seem obvious in 2015. But, then, the sections on Maturana and Heidegger are perhaps as essential to today's techie's as ever.
