Half-assed Dennett half-asses it again. 

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.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
