Alan Turing (1912–1954) was one of the most important English mathematicians, logicians, cryptanalysts, and computer scientists of the last century. He was highly influential in the development of computer science, providing a formalization of the concepts of “algorithm” and “computation” with the Turing machine. Turing is widely considered to be the father of artificial intelligence and mathematical biology, specifically in the field of morphogenesis. In occasion of the centenary of his birth, Philosophical Readings will devote an entire issue on his impact upon philosophy.
