Six of todays great thinkers discuss and debate unanswerable questions such as the nature of consciousness and temporal existence.

Dennett (philosopher); Stephen Jay Gould (paleontologist); Rupert Sheldrake (biochemist); Freeman Dyson (physicist); and Stephen Toulmin (historian and philosopher). No index.
