Download PROTOTHINKER (Version 8.1) Now!

ProtoThinker (or "PT" for short) is a wonderful piece of software that is the namesake of the PT-Project. It was written by John Barker at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville as a teaching tool for use in the classroom. There is far more to the program than could possibly be explained in these web pages, so we encourage you to explore the program on your own (you can download a version of the program below) and to discover the various ways that we are using PT--as the language and logic center of our artificial persons (like "Iris") and to help raise questions about the nature of the human mind.
