Daniel Dennett is a world-renowned philosopher and cognitive scientist. He is a major contributor to the understanding of the conceptual foundations of evolutionary biology. In Darwin’s Dangerous Idea, Daniel argues that the “universal acid” of evolutionary explanation extends well beyond biology to re-conceptualize culture and science itself. He has also put forward the ground-breaking and uncompromising theory of computationalism to explain human consciousness.
Alongside Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins, Daniel is well known for being one of the “four horse-men of new atheism” who dedicated themselves to actively countering religion in every form. He is currently the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy, and Co-Director of the Center for Cognitive Studies at Tufts University
