In the first part of the introduction, I explain the origin of Lucas’ Gödelian Argument, providing also an outline of Gödel’s first incompleteness theorem, which is at its core, and then reconstruct the argument in its standard form. In the second part, I present some of the most relevant criticisms raised against this argument and Lucas’ main replies to them, and conclude by providing some general suggestions concerning the role of the argument in the development of the debate on the feasibility of simulating the human mind mechanically.

Abstract

In the first part of the introduction, I explain the origin of Lucas’ Gödelian Argument, providing also an outline of Gödel’s first incompleteness theorem, which is at its core, and then reconstruct the argument in its standard form. In the second part, I present some of the most relevant criticisms raised against this argument and Lucas’ main replies to them, and conclude by providing some general suggestions concerning the role of the argument in the development of the debate on the feasibility of simulating the human mind mechanically.
