The Atheism Tapes 6 - Daniel Dennett Part 2 of 2 With English Subtitles

Daniel Dennett American philosopher Dennett explains why he called one of his books Darwin's Dangerous Idea, and why many of Darwin's contemporaries, in particular, considered Darwin's theory of evolution to be dangerous. He goes on to deal with the question of consciousness (i.e., is the consciousness/soul distinct from the body), talking about Darwin's rejection of the soul and the possible origins and psychological purposes of a belief in an immaterial soul. Next, he talks about his Christian upbringing and how he became an atheist. He goes on to ask why it is thought rude to criticise religious belief, and suggests that it is due to the influential status of the religions in question. He finishes by wondering whether we could live effectively in a post-theistic world.

Interviews were filmed in a 16:9 format and intercut with public domain material from the Prelinger Archives. This archival footage (mostly film clips from the 1940's and 50's) was used to create visual metaphors highlighting the speaker's points. This episode features Daniel Dennett. He is a prominent American philosopher whose research centers on philosophy of mind, philosophy of science and philosophy of biology, particularly as those fields relate to evolutionary biology and cognitive science. He is currently the co-director of the Center for Cognitive Studies, the Austin B. Fletcher Professor of Philosophy, and a University Professor at Tufts University.

Dan Dennett Interview

In 2003, the BBC produced a documentary hosted by Jonathan Miller called "Atheism: A Rough History of Disbelief" but they left out a lot of good material. However, in 2004 they agreed to show much of the discarded clips including one that featured Daniel Dennett. In this selection from that clip, Jonathan Miller asks Dan about his book "Darwin's Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanings of Life". Before Darwin, there was no answer to the question of how the world came to be as it was other than the idea of a god. But Darwin made it possible to see that a god was not necessary.
