Reviews

An excellent introduction to Dennett's body of thought.
A philosopher's box of tools for the musing mind.
"[Dennett] is a master at inventing tools for thought-- metaphysical jokes, fables, parables, puzzles, and zany Monty-Python-like sketches that can help thinkers feel their way forward.
One of the most original thinkers of our time.--Michael Shermer
The sharpest, cleverest, most stylish prober of how issues of human consciousness interconnect today with evolutionary theory.--Carlin Romano
