A collection of seventeen essays covering various philosophical and literary concerns. Included among these are an explanation of T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land," an overview of Kierkegaard's idea of the self, remarks on the rights of artificial intelligence, an analysis of the threat technology poses to democracy, a new theory of mind and consciousness, and the thesis that evolution is ultimately teleological. While covering various different subjects, these essays all share in expressing a pursuit of original ideas and the desire to understand things at their most fundamental level.
