Daniel Dennett 

A philosopher who “defies categorization,” 2011 Selzer Visiting Philosopher Daniel Dennett will share his views in “A Human Mind as an Upside Down Brain” tonight (Wednesday) at 7:30 p.m. in Moore Lounge of Pearsons Hall.

Dennett is the author of 13 books and more than 300 articles (one of which you can read here) and a co-director of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Tufts University. He is the second Selzer Visiting Philosopher, a program dedicated to brining some of the most renowned minds of the field to campus for lectures, informal interaction, and classroom visits.

He will also be leading a Faculty-at-Four discussion about "Breaking the Spell: Religion as a Natural Phenomenon."
