really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction, mind-and-brain

A groundbreaking explanation of what we are referring to when we talk about our consciousness. Criticism is often levelled at Dennett for "explaining away" consciousness, but his point is to say that our folkpsychological intuitions about consciousness are wrong, and we have to rethink it all over if it's ever going to make sense. Good riddance to the cartesian theater.
