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 metal activity transcends the system that supports it. If life ca grow out of the formal chemical substrate of the cell, if consciousness can emerge out of a formal system of firing euros, the so too will computers attain human intelligence. Gödel, Escher, Bach is a wonderful exploration of fascinating ideas at the heart of cognitive science: meaning, reduction, recursion, and much more.
