Goedel Escher Bach - by Douglas Hofstadter

Post by NielsBohr » Sat Aug 23, 2014 12:27 am

Hi,

This topic to write about Goedel Escher Bach, by Douglas Hofstadter.

To be brief, I believe to know that Douglas Hofstadter is a physicist nowadays active in cognitive psychology and computer science ("only that").

The book seems to have been written about the question to know if the universe is really an analogy to a formalism.

As I am beginning, all the purposes are welcome.

Thanks.

Goedel Escher Bach is a weighty composition. Are you still interested in examining it?

Fun read, but don't put too much weight in it. Can everything in the universe be formalized by a part of the model itself? I doubt it.
