A few of us may be natural geniuses; others are blessed with reserves of willpower. Then theres the rest of us: not prodigies and short on time, but still aspiring to understand the world. What can we do? Daniel Dennett, one of the worlds most original thinkers, reveals a collection of his favourite thinking tools, or intuition pumps. From Occams Razor to the benefit of mistakes, the 90 per cent rule to avoiding deepitites, this entertaining guide will enable you to tackle lifes most fundamental questions - evolution, meaning, consciousness and free will - and teach you to think truly independently and creatively. Daniel Dennett is one of the most original and provocative thinkers in the world. A brilliant polemicist and philosopher, he is famous for challenging unexamined orthodoxies.
