    Content and consciousness.Daniel Clement Dennett - 1969 - Boston: Routledge & Kegan Paul.

This paperback edition contains a preface placing the book in the context of recent (...)

    Freedom evolves.Daniel Clement Dennett - 2003 - New York: Viking Press.
    Daniel C. Dennett is a brilliant polemicist, famous for challenging unexamined orthodoxies.

In this new book, Dennett shows that evolution is the key to resolving the ancient problems (...)

    Inside Jokes: Using Humor to Reverse-Engineer the Mind.Matthew M. Hurley, Daniel Clement Dennett & Reginald B. Adams - 2013 - MIT Press.
    Some things are funny -- jokes, puns, sitcoms, Charlie Chaplin, The Far Side, Malvolio with his yellow garters crossed -- but why? Why does humor exist in the first place?
