Dr. Daniel Dennett is a philosopher, professor at Tufts University, and author of several books including Breaking the Spell and Darwin’s Dangerous Idea. His research also led to the formation of The Clergy Project, an online forum for closeted religious leaders who no longer believe in God.
His latest book is called From Bacteria to Bach and Back, and it’s all about how our minds evolved.
I spoke with him about why our minds are like a loaded iPhone, what we would do if the internet broke, and his new art exhibit.
Here’s more information on Dr. Dennett’s upcoming art exhibit.
