i have a couple of Daniel Dennet’s books to read.
i heard him interviewed on “The Life Scientific” on Bbc radio 4 a while ago, and was immediately impressed with his thinking.
it particularly interests me that our consciousness spontaneously forms from the interactions of “trillions of tiny robots” and that music is so important to this consciousness in pretty much everyone to some extent or another.
warning - do not read if you are offended by atheism, or the view that no one has the right to impose their spooky morality on anyone else, ever.
also note - The Life Scientific interviews are available on bbc iplayer, and are always worth hearing - a huge variety of scientists old and young have been interviewed at one point or another
