Dennett, Penguin books, 1991
{smile}I'm working my way through this one for the second time now. What seems to be controversial in the field of neurophilosophy about the workings of the mind, seems just a good design when you look at it as software or wetware. The Orwellian model (and the Stalinesque model to a lesser degree) are nothing but good encapsulated object designs, if you think about it. (Read it and those terms will meme themselves into your existence.) Getting a good grip on the theories presented here seems to lead to much more elegant object designs in just about any type of software. (No, I'm not talking AI here, I'm talking real software.)
