In this discussion hosted by Google, skeptic philosopher Daniel Dennett discusses how human beings learned to develop thinking tools to amplify our intellectual reach and grow as a species. Going back 10,000 years, Dennett takes a historical look at the relationship between evolution, and the growing self-awareness of how our tools could help our species survive, thrive, and eventually dominate the planet. He also draws an interesting parallel between the way we build on previous thinking, and the way programmers build and improve on previous software - in other words, if your brain is the operating system, then thinking tools are the apps.
