I've posted my notes for chapters 5, 6, and 7, and now I'm going to take a break from the book for a while. Dennett's style and arguments are wearing on me, and I'm not sure that finishing the book is going to be worthwhile until discussion picks up in this forum.
It's been suggested in the past that my style of discussing books like this drives people away from the threads. If anyone feels that way, then just pretend, for the moment, that I haven't posted anything at all. Go ahead and make your comments, and later on, if you want to see a dissenting opinion, you can go back and check out what I've written so far. I definitely don't want to dissuade anyone from taking part in the discussion.
