  • "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. If life can grow out of the formal chemical substrate of the cell, if consciousness can emerge out of a formal system of firing neurons, then 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."
  • "Linking together the music of Bach, the graphic art of Escher and the mathematical theorems of Godel, as well as ideas drawn from logic, biology, psyhcology, physics and linguistics, Hofstadter illuminates the nature of the human thought process."
  • "'What is a self, and how can a self come out of inaminate matter?' This book examines this riddle. Linking together the music of J S Bach, the graphic art of Escher and the mathematical theorems of Godel, as well as ideas drawn from logic, biology, psychology, physics and linguistics, it reveals the mysteries of human thought processes."
  • ""A metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the manner of Lewis Carroll"--Cover subtitle."
  • "Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this book applies Godel's seminal contribution to modern mathematics to the study of the human mind and the development of artificial intelligence."
  • "Discusses the unity among Johann Sebastian Bach's multifaceted compositions, graphic artist M.C. Escher's paradoxical drawings, and the mathematical concepts of Kurt Godel, exploring the Strange Loop phenomenon that occurs in all their work, in which moving upwards or downwards through the levels of a hierarchical system leads right back to the beginning."
