Daniel C. Dennett
3.3/5 (3 ratings)
Daniel C. Dennett, one of the pioneers who laid the foundations of the field of cognitive science, continues to inform, challenge, and stimulate. This special boxed set includes all of Dennett's MIT Press/Bradford Books volumes. The set also includes a pamphlet containing a cross-referenced index.Brainstorms: Philosophical Essays on Mind and Psychology : "One of the most important contributions to thinking about thinking yet written.... It is remarkably lucid and well written, refreshing and unpompous."--Douglas R. Hofstadter, "The New York Review of Books"Elbow Room: The Varieties of Free Will Worth Wanting : "What Dennett ends up with is common sense refined, deepened, and nudged ever so gently toward humane, engaged rationality."--George Scialabba, "Voice Literary Supplement"The Intentional Stance : How are we able to understand and anticipate each other in everyday life, in our daily interactions? We adopt a stance, Dennett argues, a predictive strategy of interpretation that presupposes the rationality of the people--or other entities--we hope to understand and predict...".should do much to silence those biologists who believe that philosophers never have anything useful to say to them."--Alun Anderson, "Nature"Brainchildren: Essays on Designing Minds : Thinking and research in cognitive science have broadened considerably since the publication of Daniel Dennett's earlier books with MIT Press. This book, which can be viewed as a kind of sequel to "Brainstorms," collects Dennett's essays on the philosophy of mind, artificial intelligence, and cognitive ethology that appeared in relatively inaccessible journals from 1984 to 1996.
