Strong AI is false (Searle 1991: 526). 22Cf. Leibniz ([1714] 1902: 254). Among the authors who have pointed out the similarity of Searle’s thought experiment with Leibniz’s, cf. Sharvy (1983), Cole (1984), Rapaport (1986), and Jacquette (1989: 616–617). 23Cf. Block (1978). M. e. there is no apparent behavioural experiment to discriminate a genuinely blind man from one who is not). e. ), we may also imagine equipping a blind person (or simply somebody whose eyes were adequately sealed) with similar electronic devices, and teaching him/her to interpret the stimuli received through these electronic “sense organs” (stimuli that might be for example of a tactile character).

It is impossible to distinguish the evidence for the existence of certain particles from the evidence for the theory that talks about them, since the content of the theory is just the claim that these particles and their properties exist. As Franklin noted, when experimenters find a particle with a charge, mass and lifetime equal to those ascribed by the theory to K mesons, they rightly assert the existence of K-mesons—just as we would assert the existence of the philosopher Bas van Fraassen if we found an entity with height, weight, gender, hair colour, eye colour, date of birth and home address which were exactly those listed on his driver’s license.
