This book is a collection of very small essays by a bunch of leading scientists, philosophers, writers, and intellectuals on the title question. The topics range from artificial intelligence to consciousness to epistemology (and a lot in between).
This was an immensely satisfying read. You get a lot of perspective just reading the speculations of these people. I highly recommend this book!
