Summary
Minds are complex artifacts, partly biological and partly social, and only a unified, multidisciplinary approach will yield a realistic theory of how minds came into existence and how they work. One of the foremost thinkers in this multidisciplinary field is Daniel Dennett. This book brings together his essays on philosophy of mind, artificial intelligence, and cognitive ethology that appeared in relatively inaccessible journals from 1984 to 1996
