ON EXPLORATIONS: how scientists view religion, and the mind from a scientific point of view

In the first part of this episode, Dr. Michio Kaku speaks with Prof. Daniel Dennett, an American philosopher, writer, and cognitive scientist whose research centers on the philosophy of mind, philosophy of science, and philosophy of biology, particularly as those fields relate to evolutionary biology and cognitive science. Dennett’s position is certainly equivocal to say the least.

In the second half, Dr. Kaku speaks with Prof. Steven Pinker, a Canadian-American cognitive psychologist, psycholinguist, popular science author, and public intellectual. He is an advocate of evolutionary psychology and the computational theory of mind.
