Lecture by Prof. Daniel Dennett, Co-director of the Center for Cognitive Studies and Professor, Tufts University, Massachusetts, USA.
Unfortunately, we have to cancel the meeting with Dennett’s lecture at the University of Oslo 28 January, because he is experiencing a minor health problem and has been advised not to travel to Europe right now. However, we hope that he can come to Oslo sometime later this year.
