i am almost finished with a very cool book...
a seamless blend of science, philosophy, and faith (kinda like science in real life :-)...powerfully literary...virtually every line is packed with thought provoking profundity
similar in fashion to lewis carroll's work
should be required reading for every university student
i do not agree with some of the philosophical premises...but it is a GREAT read
from the back cover...
one of the most exciting and original books of many a publishing season ---science 80
> a brilliant, creative and very personal synthesis without precident or peer in modern literature ---mathematics magazine
winner of the pulitzer prize
i would also recommend this one for the high school guy that was looking for something challenging...this will challenge in a different way than what he was looking for
don't worry...it's not full of math
for your reading and reflecting pleasure...get this one
hofstadter, douglas r. godel, escher, bach: an eternal golden braid (vintage/random house, new york) 1979.
