Odile Jacob | 2000 | ISBN: 2738107249 | French | PDF | 656 pages | 12.9 MB

Qu’implique vraiment la théorie de l’évolution par sélection naturelle ? Pourquoi dérange-t-elle autant, non seulement les esprits religieux, mais aussi les philosophes, et même certains biologistes ? En quoi révolutionne-t-elle notre conception de l’esprit ? Nous n’avons certainement pas tiré toutes les conséquences des découvertes darwiniennes. …

Daniel Dennett, "La conscience expliquée"
Odile Jacob | 2001 | ISBN: 2738102166 | French | PDF | 628 pages | 10.2 MB

Qu'est-ce qui fait d'un peu de matière un être animé ? Qu'est-ce qui confère à certaines structures physiques le privilège énigmatique d'éprouver des sensations et d'avoir des expériences ? La conscience. Mais que sait-on de la conscience ? Daniel C. Dennett propose un nouveau modèle explicatif fondé sur les acquis modernes de la psychologie, de la neurologie, de l'intelligence artificielle. Daniel C. Dennett dirige le Center for Cognitive Studies de Tufts University. Il est l'un des chefs de file de la philosophie de l'esprit aux États-Unis.

Il nostro scopo non è tanto rispondere direttamente alle grandi domande, quanto scuotere tutti: sia coloro che hanno del mondo una visione rigida, concreta, scientifica, sia coloro che hanno una visione religiosa o spiritualistica dell'anima umana. …

In the years since Daniel Dennett's influential Consciousness Explained was published in 1991, scientific research on consciousness has been a hotly contested battleground of rival theories – "so rambunctious," Dennett observes, "that several people are writing books just about the tumult." With Sweet Dreams, Dennett returns to the subject for "revision and renewal" of his theory of consciousness, taking into account major empirical advances in the field since 1991 as well as recent theoretical challenges.
