The Philosophical Perspective
Authored by: Anonymous on Friday, July 20 2012 @ 11:20 PM EDT
Another thought:

If you teach the man Chinese, he will internalize the
rules (mostly heuristics, really) that would have to be
written down as part of the System. He will then be able to
apply them as fast as the Chinese speakers.

The funny thing about this example is that we say that a
person "understands" language once they can perform a
linguistic task completely unconsciously. At that point
they no longer have any idea *how* they do it. Perhaps this
is why "understanding" seems so magically different from the
application of algorithms.

Correction, my "fundamental criticism" is made on the
Stanford page under the rubric "Other Minds Reply". Searle's
response ("we presume it") is completely unsatisfactory.

My view is also closely related to the "Intuition Reply"
which to me is merely an elaboration of why the Other Minds
Reply poses a valid question.
