Artificial Paranoia: A Computer Simulation of Paranoid Processes is a seven-chapter book that begins by explaining the concept, characteristics, and theories of paranoia. Subsequent chapters focus on the explanations, models, and symbol-processing theory of the paranoid mode. Another chapter explores language-recognition processes for understanding dialogues in teletyped psychiatric interviews. The last three chapters explore the central processes of the model, validation, and evaluation.
