On the Relation of Computing to the World (William J. Rapaport)


I survey a common theme that pervades the philosophy of computer science (and philosophy more generally): the relation of computing to the world. Are algorithms merely certain procedures entirely characterizable in an “indigenous”, “internal’, “intrinsic”, “local”, “narrow”, “syntactic” (more generally: “intra-system”) purely Turing-machine language? Or must they interact with the real world, with a purpose that is expressible only in a language with an “external”, “extrinsic”, “global”, “wide”, “inherited” (more generally: “extra-” or “inter-”system) semantics?
