Abstract:

Philosopher and scientist Dan Dennett argues that human consciousness and free will are the result of physical processes and are not what we traditionally think they are. In this TEDTalk, Dennett makes a compelling argument that not only don't we understand our own consciousness, but that half the time our brains are actively fooling us. "Dan Dennett is our best current philosopher", says AI pioneer Marvin Minsky. "He is the next Bertrand Russell. Unlike traditional philosophers, Dan is a student of neuroscience, linguistics, artificial intelligence, computer science, and psychology. He's redefining and reforming the role of the philosopher".
