«Che cos'è la mente? Chi sono io? Può la mera materia pensare o sentire? Dov'è l'anima? Chiunque si trovi ad affrontare queste domande precipita in un mare di perplessità. Questo libro vuole essere un tentativo di rivelare queste perplessità e portarle in piena luce. Il nostro scopo non è tanto rispondere direttamente alle grandi domande, quanto scuotere tutti: sia coloro che hanno del mondo una visione rigida, concreta, scientifica, sia coloro che hanno una visione religiosa o spiritualistica dell'anima umana. …

Douglas Hofstadter’s book is concerned directly with the nature of “maps” or links between formal systems. However, according to Hofstadter, the formal system that underlies all mental activity transcends the system that supports it.

Basic Books | January 17, 2001 | English | ISBN: 0465030912 | 484 pages | PDF | 4 MB

With contributions from Jorge Luis Borges, Richard Dawkins, John Searle, and Robert Nozick, The Mind's I explores the meaning of self and consciousness through the perspectives of literature, artificial intelligence, psychology, and other disciplines.


Собственно, эту книгу, которая в русском переводе называется «Гёдель, Эшер, Бах: эта бесконечная гирлянда. Метафизическая фуга о разуме и машинах в духе Льюса Кэрролла», довольно трудно как-то однозначно охарактеризовать. Хофштадтер, ученый-универсал и специалист в области когнитивных наук и кибернетики, использует в ней имена Гёделя, Эшера и Баха для иллюстрации целого ряда проблем семантики, теории систем, искусственного интеллекта, математики и логики, лингвистики, теории сознания. В конечном итоге, как пишет Хофштадтер, вопрос этой книги в том, что такое «я».

Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper are both brilliant physicists working at Caltech in Pasadena, California. They are colleagues, best friends, and roommates, although in all capacities their relationship is always tested primarily by Sheldon's regimented, deeply eccentric, and non-conventional ways. They are also friends with their Caltech colleagues mechanical engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali. The foursome spend their time working on their individual work projects, playing video games, watching science-fiction movies, or reading comic books. As they are self-professed nerds, all have little or no luck with popular women. When Penny, a pretty woman and an aspiring actress originally from Omaha, moves into the apartment across the hall from Leonard and Sheldon's, Leonard has another aspiration in life, namely to get Penny to be his girlfriend.
