Daniel Dennett (1942) is Professor of Philosophy, University Professor, and Co-Director of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Tufts University. He has written many books and papers on the philosophy of mind, free will, artificial intelligence, evolution and the brain. Among them are Consciousness Explained (1991), Darwin's Dangerous Idea (1995), and, most recently, Breaking the Spell (2006).

This lecture is organized by the Cognitive Science Center Amsterdam, the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation and SMART Cognitive Science.
