The Mind’s I: Fantasies and Reflections On Self and Soul Hofstadter, D.R. and D.C. Dennett 1985

“Ever since David Hume declared in the 18th century that the Self is only a heap of perceptions, the poor Ego has been in a shaky conditions indeed…Mind and consciousness becomes dispensable items in our accounts of reality, ghosts in the bodily machine…Yet there are indications here and there that the tide may be tuming…and the appearance of The Mind’s I, edited by Douglas R.  Hofstadter and Daniel C. Dennett, seems a welcome sign of change.”—William Barrett, The New York Times Book Review
