How Emotions Are Made: This one really blew my mind. The continuity which we call denntet or consciousness continues in some mysterious way, replacing of denmett in our bodies, and over the course of time, replacing our entire body many times over the course of a lifetime. I think that the major problem for the book is the format. Want to Read saving…. Each piece is followed by the authors’ comments under sections called “Reflections”.

From verbalizing chimpanzees to scientific speculations involving machines with souls, from the mesmerizing, maze-like fiction of Borges to the tantalizing, dreamlike fiction o Brilliant, shattering, mind-jolting, The Mind’s I is a searching, probing cosmic journey deennett the mind that goes deeply into the problem of self and self-consciousness as anything written in our time.

A sampling of its contents: Oltre ad ospitare ben noti racconti-capolavoro di Borges, Lem, Rucker, il volume offre l’occasione per leggere “in originale” il celebre argomento della “Stanza cinese” di Searle o “What is it like to be a bat”, di Nagel.

This collection of essays is just a sketch of where Dennett’s head was at in the 90s. We don’t have good mathematical models for concepts like beauty, humor or religious feeling. Introductions were provided for topics, then vignettes illustrated the topics, and these were followed by a reflection by the authors to help readers distill the take-aways. I will say that both do a fair job writing their own reflections, and discussing the ideas in some of the earlier works, which are used alongside writing by Borges and Nozick and Searle, but those are really the only major brightspots in a work that feels sewn together in odd places, presented in a way that is just south of playful [something Dennett and Hofstadter generally do very well].
