Abstract:  "Minds may be computers but, because they evolved, they cannot be programmed the way the computers that many of us have on our desks can be.  Therefore, they must acquire the algorithms they apply in other ways.  Looking at how they do that might help us understand how minds work and why people need intelligence to play chess, why computers can play chess without it, and why animals cannot play chess at all."
