Adler probes the intellect's uniqueness, its relation to artificial and extra-terrestrial intelligence, the role of language in relation to mind and meaning, and the uses, misuses and disuses of the intellect. For Adler the intellect is an immaterial component of human nature, even though it is dependent on brain states and processes. If the minds of men lacked intellect, Adler argues, their minds would differ only in degree from the minds of other animals. But if human beings alone have minds that possess intellectual powers, then it is not matter over mind, as the behaviourists would assert, but mind over matter.
