For several years Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience printed Interviews with influential scientists and thinkers. Earlier this year (in January 2024), founding Editor-in-Chief Michael Gazzaniga had occasion to correspond with Dennett, and during their exchange Dennett indicated that the content of his Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience Interview, published in Volume 7, Issue Number 5, still reflects his views on these questions. Now, just a few months later, as we reflect on Dan Dennett’s many contributions to our field, is an apt time to revisit this Interview.
