Douglas r. hofstadter. N Author of the Pulitzer Prize winning . This book, as it says on its cover and in the Introduction, deals with Mind and Pattern. To me, boiling things down to their conceptual skeletons is the royal road to truth (to mix metaphors rather horribly). I hope that Metamagical Themas will help people to bring more clarity, precision, and elegance to their thinking about situations large and small. I also hope that it will inspire people to dedicate more of their energies to global problems in this lunatic but lovable world, because we live in a time of unprecedented urgency.

Godel, Escher, Bach was an important book in my life, so I put Metamagical Themas on my to-read list. It took me a few years to get to it due to the intimidating length, but I finally had the chance to read it.

I can't speak highly enough of Metamagical Themas. I loved the broad range of topics. The depth and thoughtfulness of the work of the work are incredible. I think about things I read in this book on a daily basis in both my work and personal life.

Hofstadter first wrote "Godel, Escher, and Bach", a magnum opus right out of the starting gate, followed up by the collection of essays in "The Mind's 'I'" that, while not surpassing "Godel, Escher & Bach", is regardless still a worthy second offering. And once again, Hofstadter's intellect & wit sparkle with "Metamagical Thema". If you enjoyed & were intrigued by Hofstadter's first two efforts, you will not be disappointed with his latest. Intelligent, intriguing and entertaining. Recreation and exercise for the intellect & the soul!

I fell in love with the writer's first book, "Goedel, Escher, Bach, the Eternal Golden Braid" in the 1980's and wore out my first copies, and have been reading his books ever since. He never lets me down!

The author is famous talkimg about several arguments of the modern science, particularly in relation to the artificial intelligence. Those applications are significative because they are considered around musics, languages of words, strange attractors, recursive procedures. We are so in the first times of this science and the approach is interesting for how is developped the Turing Test.

A must read to anyone interested in questions about what is intelligence, life, and society...
Some are more difficult to follow, but generally, it's written so anyone can understand and enjoy.

A collection of the Metamagical themas column form Scientific American with responses, additions and some articles never published. Something for everybody. Insights into things one never knew you liked. It should be on the list of best books if you could only have one.
good book, very intriguing to say the least. Hofstadter is one of a kind. You might want to smoke a few bowls before you start this journey ; )
