Grobstein Course Notes
One of the things I like best about Darwin's idea is the fact that it's conceptual. I mean that you don't have to have a strong background in biology or chemistry to understand what he's talking about You couldn't read and really comprehend someone like Newton or Einstein without a strong background in physics and math. Dennett underlines this perfectly. He's a philosopher, not a biologist, but he can still change the way we think about evolution and natural selection.
Also, Dennett has a series of awesome TED talks, <http://www.ted.com/speakers/dan_dennett.html> that I definitely recommend watching.
Class is itself an experiment in a particular form of education: co-constructive inquiry
