Sweet Dreams

posted by Tim Walters @ 10:15 PM

Bought Sweet Dreams by Daniel Dennett on impulse at the checkout counter, in hardback yet. I'm a big Dennett fan, but this one isn't really worth bothering with--it's a collection of papers and talks, quite short and with no attempt made to edit out redundancies. There are whole paragraphs that appear near-verbatim in more than one chapter.

The book is meant as an update of Consciousness Explained, but it's basically just a few more go-rounds about qualia. Not Necessary.

He must be such a rock star that a compilation of rarities and alternate takes has a market.

And I'm apparently it. Or was, anyway.
