Dehaene and Dennett discuss conscioussness

Can be found here and below. The event starts out with the host saying they agree, so it's not a debate. They do not agree on consciousness. From reading Dennett's latest book he still maintains consciousness is a user illusion. Dehaene refutes this emphatically. But it appears they want to avoid a debate here so it's just each of them talking in turn about their work, then answering questions.

The blurb:

Panel Discussion on the Mind

Stanislas Dehaene, author of Consciousness and the Brain: Deciphering How the Brain Codes Our Thoughts, and Daniel Dennett, author of Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking, talked about their books on the workings of the human brain.“State of Mind: Consciousness and Thinking” was a panel at the 2014 Boston Book Festival, held October 25 in the sanctuary of Old South Church.
