Video Fun With Dan Dennett

I like Dennett, even though I often wish he would think more integrally - he's surely capable, but likely hasn't been exposed to the material. Maybe someday.

Here are few recent videos from Big Think.

Daniel Dennett Reveals the Mechanics of Studying Consciousness

Daniel Dennett Discusses the Future of Rationality

Daniel Dennett Explains How People Are Like Robots

This last one is true, but very partial - doesn't explain the way consciousness arises in the brain as the synergistic sum of all neural processes - the whole is greater than the parts.
