This volume offers very selected papers from the 2014 conference of the "International Association for Computing and Philosophy" (IACAP) - a conference tradition of 28 years. The theme of the papers is the two-way relation between computing technologies and philosophical questions: Computing technologies both raise new philosophical questions, and shed light on traditional philosophical problems. The chapters cover: 1) philosophy of computing, 2) philosophy of computer science & discovery, 3) philosophy of cognition & intelligence, 4) computing & society, and 5) ethics of computation.

Vincent C. Müller's research focuses on the nature and future of computational systems, particularly on the prospects and dangers of artificial intelligence. He is the coordinator of the European Network for Cognitive Systems, Robotics and Interaction with nearly 1000 members, funded by the European Union through two FP7 projects with ...
