Summary
Six of todays great thinkers discuss and debate unanswerable questions such as the nature of consciousness and temporal existence. In each chapter, Wim Kayzer, host of a popular public television show from which these conversations were drawn, interviews Oliver Sachs (neurologist and psychiatrist); Daniel C. Dennett (philosopher); Stephen Jay Gould (paleontologist); Rupert Sheldrake (biochemist); Freeman Dyson (physicist); and Stephen Toulmin (historian and philosopher). No index.
