Dennett offers aspiring thinkers his personal trove of mind-stretching thought experiments. Over a storied career he has engaged questions about science and the workings of the mind.
Dennett will share the “imagination extenders and focus-holders” that he and others have developed for addressing life’s most fundamental questions, cognitive tools purpose-built for the most treacherous subject matter: evolution, meaning, mind and free will.
