Reading 1: Where Am I?

Where Am I is a thought experiment written by philosopher and cognitive scientist Daniel Dennet. It explores the notion of the self and where it resides…is it in the brain or the body? Both? Neither?

This reading is meant as an open question as to the nature of consciousness, one that will become more and more relevant as the complexity of our machines approach the refinement of the human mind.
