Hilary Putnam, who may have been the first philosopher to advance the notion that the computer is an apt model for the mind, takes a radically new view of his own theory of functionalism in this book.

From Library Journal:

$19.95. phil Putnam here revises the functionalist view of mind that he formerly espoused. He retains the belief that, in principle, a machine and a person can work the same way when described at the relevant level of abstraction, yet he disavows the belief that mental states are functional statesthough granting that the former emerge from and may supervene upon the latter. Among the theses offered are that the criterion for sameness of meaning is actual interpretation practice; that mental states cannot be programs; that we cannot have a scientific theory of intentional phenomena; and that even if there were a kind of equivalence in the structure of computational states of physically possible organisms who share a belief, we could not define the equivalence. An important work in cognitive science and the philosophy of mind. Robert Hoffman, York Coll., CUNY
