I have a long-standing grudge against Daniel Dennett
This all goes back to my purchase of his book, many years ago, "Consciousness Explained
". The title is a lie, as I found out some 450 pages later.
I then saw Dennett speak at CU. For reasons that can't possibly be linked to survival or biology, he wore an all-white suit with a bolo tie, giving the impression of bloated Col. Sanders who forgot his wig.
I was therefore not surprised in the least to hear that his latest work, titled with similar bravado to the door stop I spent $16 on, is not exactly an analytic masterwork
The only spell Dennett is likely to break is the illusion that Tufts University is anything more than a prison for delinquent children.
