    It's going to be too much time out of my day, I'm afraid. Will check out the book, eventually.

    Oh I'm so disappointed but I won't be able to attend the lecture tomorrow after all. I hope that our attendees find each other. I welcome you to share your findings and impressions to the group. I hope to see you at our next Meetup!

    Not a big Dennett fan, but the topic seems tailor-made for the style of philosophy I like to do!
