Part of the Studies in Applied Philosophy, Epistemology and Rational Ethics book series (SAPERE, volume 5)


We herein report on a project devoted to charting some of the most salient points in a modern “geography” of minds, machines, and mathematics; the project is funded by the John Templeton Foundation, and is being carried out in Bringsjord’s AI and Reasoning Laboratory.


Inference Rule Propositional Attitude Epistemic Logic Personal Pronoun Event Calculus 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
