Basically, this book is an overview of how consciousness evolved. Beginning with the simplest self-replicating molecules and moving all the way up to human consciousness and all of its subjective experience. Most interesting is his explanation of 'the intentional stance', an explanatory view lets us examine mindless organic things in the same way that we look at mindful things like chimps and people.
