Internationally renowned philosopher, Professor Daniel Dennett, presents this year's Charles Darwin Oration.

Professor Dennet's 2017 book 'From Bacteria to Bach: Charles Darwin's Vision Extended' explores the origin of human consciousness from a materialist theory of mind, arguing that consciousness is no more mysterious than gravity and that natural systems can create “competence without comprehension”.
