Dennet, Daniel

Dennett is a philosopher who specializes in the area of consciousness. His view of it, similar to that of Marvin Minsky, is as high-level, abstract thinking. He is known as the leading proponent of the computational model of the mind and has clashed with philosophers such as John Searle who maintain that the most important aspects of consciousness - intentionality and subjective quality - can never be computed.
