Book: Content & Consciousness

After reading Darwin’s Dangerous Idea, I decided to read Dennet’s other books. This book is Dennet’s Ph.D. thesis in which he sets out the problem of mind, disposes of some of the common fallacies in the philosophy of mind, and maps out some of the parameters that an analysis of the mind would have to adhere to. Although not as exciting as Darwin’s Dangerous Idea, the writing shows Dennet’s trademark clarity and I look forward to reading his subsequent efforts.
