Description

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.

Уважаемо издателство, ето какво написах, на едно друго място като коментар за тази книга: "Не се чудете защо за това заглавие коментарите са малко, а може би даже липсват. Отговорът е прост - защото също толкова са и хората, които ще посмеят да влязат в открит дебат по съдържанието й. Блестяща е! Осмелете се да започнете четенето и сами ще се убедите за какво точно става дума. Поздравления за хората, които успяха да направят така, че това издание да бъде достъпно вече и на български език." Споделям го и с вас защото наистина се справяте страхотно особено в абсурдния ни живот в прекрасната ни страна. Желая ви здраве и успех! Не се отказвайте!

Щастлив съм, че тази великолепна книга е преведена на български! Честно казано не се надявах това да се случи. Цената е напълно приемлива за такъв сложен тест. Може ли да се надяваме, че ще преведете и Мартин Гарднър? Поздрави, Павел Павлов
