Abstract

Highlights ► I first show that the Turing test is not an expression of behaviourism. ► To demonstrate this, I outline Turing’s necessary condition for intelligence. ► Then I show that Alan Turing was likely aware of Descartes’s ‘language test’. ► Last I argue that Descartes’s and Turing’s tests have similar epistemic purposes.
