Kinds of Minds: Toward an Understanding of Consciousness & Elbow Room
This tape is part of a unique twenty-part series, providing an enjoyable and stimulating introduction to all the main areas of science, selected under the guidance of Richard Dawkins.
What kinds of minds are there? Do starfish, amoebas or dogs have minds? What makes human minds so different? Brilliant philosopher and bestselling author Daniel C. Dennett goes back to basics to question whether there is one special phenomenon, sentience, that distinguishes some organisms from others. He discovers how different minds acquire their different powers, and examines the explosive importance of language.
Dennett is as lively a reader as he is writer and this audio book adds an extra dimension of clarity and understanding to his beautifully written work.

Mind & Reality:
In this anthology of selections from The MIT Press, four of today's most distinguished philosophers speculate on the nature of the human mind. Among the subjects discussed are: consciousness and its place in nature, the emergence of language and reflection, the meaning of mental representations, and, in a coda exploding with possibilities, the expansion of consciousness by conceptual revelation. The authors' diverse viewpoints illuminate many issues that bear on current philosophical debates.
1. The Rediscovery of the Mind by John R. Searle
