A critical examination of the advancing intellectual developments in artificial intelligence and evaluation of their salient philosophical and psychological implications. This book contains a wealth of research and theory across major domains of cognition that support the broad intellectual artificial intelligence objective of developing a structured and detailed unified science of human and computational intelligence.

The significant philosophical and psychological implications that derive from pursuing an extraordinary intellectual objective of developing an abstract science of intelligence supported by specific theory and research will be of special interest to creative scholars in the disciplines of the sciences of cognition. By considering philosophical and psychological implications derived directly from current theory and research, this book is distinguished from speculative books lacking in intellectual grounding.
