There are 7 maps in the printed version of the
Mapping Great Debates: Can Computers Think? series.
Each are 3 x 4 feet in size.

We've tried to cut them apart and squeeze them into a useful set of layers on the web.
We use the "functionalism" and "conscious computers" debates (below) from Map 6 for this demonstration.
