A good book against unscientific philosophers

Intuition Pumps and Other Tools for Thinking - Daniel C. Dennett

Clinging to the idea that the mind is more than just the brain, Mr. Dennett said, is “profoundly naïve and anti-scientific.”

That's the type of philosophers I like to read. I don't know if there is more of them out there somewhere.

The unscientific philosophers are full of crap that is not worth my time or energy. The human mind is the brain, processing information. 

Now, this gets me interested.

Here are two reviews.

Philosophy That Stirs the Waters

Daniel Dennett's seven tools for thinking

Mine would be added after I'm done with this one.
