Perhaps, it is time again - again again - for all of us to read John Searle's Reith Lectures, published as Minds, Brains, and Science. One can also read the entry entitled "The Chinese Room Argument" in the Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.

Other wonderful books are those by his colleague at Berkeley, Hubert Dreyfuss: the book What Computers Can't Do, and its successor What Computers Still Can't Do.
