Daniel Dennett on consciousness

Daniel Dennett

Consciousness is an intellectual illusion created by us because we're so darn reflective.

Daniel Dennett

Daniel Dennett has been described as "one of the most important philosophers of our time" as well as being coined the "devil philosopher".

He is best known for his provocative and controversial arguments that human consciousness and free will are the result of physical processes in the brain.

Regardless of how he's known, his popularity was evident when he delivered the Wallace Wurth Lecture to a packed out auditorium at UNSW Sydney.
