FROM BACTERIA TO BACH AND BACK

À propos

HOW DID WE COME TO HAVE MINDS? FOR CENTURIES, POETS, PHILOSOPHERS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND PHYSICISTS HAVE WONDERED HOW THE HUMAN MIND DEVELOPED ITS UNRIVALED ABILITIES. DISCIPLES OF DARWIN HAVE EXPLAINED HOW NATURAL SELECTION PRODUCED PLANTS, BUT WHAT ABOUT THE HUMAN MIND?
In From Bacteria to Bach and Back, Daniel C. Dennett builds on recent discoveries from biology and computer science to show, step by step, how a comprehending mind could in fact have arisen from a mindless process of natural selection.
