During this monograph, a mathematician and a neurobiologist subscribe to forces to handle some of the most the most important and arguable medical questions of our instances: can the beautiful capacities of the human mind be simulated by means of any electronic computing device? by way of combining mathematical, computational, neurobiological and evolutionary arguments, Ronald Cicurel and Miguel Nicolelis refute the chance that any Turing computer will ever achieve this kind of simulation. As a part of their argument, the authors suggest a brand new concept for mind functionality: the Relativistic mind concept. This concept money owed for many years of neurophysiological and mental findings and observations that formerly have challenged the dominant dogma in neuroscience. Altogether, this monograph includes the inaugural manifesto of a stream meant to stress the distinctiveness of human nature whereas discrediting pseudo-scientific predictions that the substitute of people via machines is impending. within the authors' opinion, the erroneous and deceptive trust that electronic machines can emulate all human behaviors defines one of many maximum threats that society faces sooner or later to maintain our lifestyle, our human tradition and our freedom.
