Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to define: what is thinking? This paper will address the question: How do humans think and how do they solve problems compared to computers? Each word has its own meaning. However, often, words have many meanings depending on what each person wants. Humans think with logic and emotions, but computers cannot think on their own as they need humans to input information in order to answer the questions asked of them. As a result, major thinkers on the subject: Hilary Putnam, John Searle, and Donald Davidson will be discussed.
