In this paper is presented the argumentation regarding the question of considering the concept of consciousness of the American philosopher Daniel Dennett as a teleofunctionalist one. The main points of his theory are given, which make it possible to compare it with other representatives of this concept. On the basis of this comparison, it is concluded that it is difficult to call Dennett a teleofunctionalist, his theory differs in its content from theories that are fully recognized as teleofunctionalist.
