Cool stuff. I'm disappointed to see that none of philosopher Dan Dennett's recent work [1] on this topic has come into these pages though. There's some overlap especially in the "thought experiment" realm, and it gets a rigorous philosophical treatment which for some is the key to this kind of problem-solving. (disclaimer: I was in the cohort of undergrads that Dennett used to review his chapters).

I found the book was written clearly, with very little philosophical jargon.
