This book moves towards a computational explanation of thought: an argument that underlying mind is a complex but compact program that corresponds to the underlying complex structure of the world. In "What Is Thought?" Eric Baum proposes a computational explanation of thought. Just as Erwin Schrodinger in his classic 1944 work "What Is Life?" argued ten years before the discovery of DNA that life must be explainable at a fundamental level by physics and chemistry, Baum contends that the present-day inability of computer science to explain thought and meaning is no reason to doubt that there can be such an explanation. Baum argues that the complexity of mind is the outcome of evolution, which has built thought processes that act unlike the standard algorithms of computer science and that to understand the mind we need to understand these thought processes and the evolutionary process that produced them in computational terms. Baum proposes that underlying mind is a complex but compact program that corresponds to the underlying structure of the world. He argues further that the mind is essentially programmed by DNA.
