Who IS Daniel Dennett?

Along with Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, and Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett is one of the leading figures in the New Atheism movement (these particular four, are aptly referred to as "The Four Horsemen").

Having written over 14 books, this acclaimed philosopher and cognitive scientist has been a longtime supporter of evolutionary biology, secularism, and reason.
