Fantasies and Reflections on Self and Soul
Mind's I by Daniel C. Dennett
Book DescriptionWith contributions from Jorge Luis Borges, Richard Dawkins, John Searle, and Robert Nozick, The Mind's I explores the meaning of self and consciousness through the perspectives of literature, artificial intelligence, psychology, and other disciplines.
