An Interview With A "Dangerous" Man

Daniel Dennett , Co-Director of the Center for Cognitive Studies and University Professor for the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University, is a Science Philosopher. It is a relatively new field, which seeks to understand and analyze the philosophical implications of our most valued scientific theories. He focuses on the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of biology. He aims to ground all of his philosophy on empirical research.

All in all, he is one bad motherfucker. Chris Floyd, of the journal Science & Spirit, interviews Professor Dennett. Read the interview here.

Here is a great article from Reason magazine where Daniel Dennet discusses on determinism, human "choice machines," and how evolution generates free will.
