'Required reading for anyone remotely curious about how they came
to be remotely curious' Observer 'Enthralling' Spectator What is
human consciousness and how is it possible? These questions
fascinate thinking people from poets and painters to physicists,
psychologists, and philosophers. This is Daniel C. Dennett's
brilliant answer, extending perspectives from his earlier work in
surprising directions, exploring the deep interactions of
evolution, brains and human culture. Part philosophical whodunnit,
part bold scientific conjecture, this landmark work enlarges themes
that have sustained Dennett's career at the forefront of
philosophical thought. In his inimitable style, laced with wit and
thought experiments, Dennett shows how culture enables reflection
by installing a profusion of thinking tools, or memes, in our
brains, and how language turbocharges this process. The result: a
mind that can comprehend the questions it poses, has emerged from a
process of cultural evolution. An agenda-setting book for a new
generation of philosophers and thinkers, From Bacteria to Bach and
Back is essential for anyone who hopes to understand human
creativity in all its applications.
