“Thank Goodness I’m Alive” by Daniel Dennett

Daniel Dennett is an American philosopher, writer, and cognitive scientist whose research centers on the philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and philosophy of biology, a “new atheist”, one of the so called “The Four Horsemen.” Prof. Dennett was invited to the 2006 meeting of the “Beyond Belief: Science, Religion, Reason and Survival” conference, but just a week before it started he suffered a heart attack. After a few days of recovery he wrote a letter to be read at the conference. This is the video of Paul Churchland reading that Dan’s letter.
