Daniel Dennett: "From Bacteria to Bach and Back: The Evolution of Minds"

In From Bacteria to Bach and Back, Daniel C. Dennett's most comprehensive exploration of evolutionary thinking yet, he builds on ideas from computer science and biology to show how a comprehending mind could in fact have arisen from a mindless process of natural selection. Part philosophical whodunit, part bold scientific conjecture, this landmark work enlarges themes that have sustained Dennett's legendary career at the forefront of philosophical thought.
