Item description for Godel, Escher, Bach by Douglas R. Hofstadter...

Puede un sistema comprenderse a s mismo ? Si esta pregunta se refiere a la mente humana, entonces nos encontramos ante una cuestin clave del pensamiento cientfico. Y de la filosofa. Y del arte. Investigar este misterio es una aventura que recorre la matemtica, la fsica, la biologa, la psicologa y, muy especialmente, el lenguaje. Douglas R. Hofstadter, joven y ya clebre cientfico, nos abre la puerta del enigma con la belleza y la alegra creadora de su estilo. Sorprendentes paralelismos ocultos entre los grabados de Escher y la msica de Bach nos remiten a las paradojas clsicas de los antiguos griegos y a un teorema de la lgica matemtica moderna que ha estremecido el pensamiento del siglo XX : el de Kurt Gdel. Todo lenguaje, todo sistema formal, todo programa de ordenador, todo proceso de pensamiento, llegan, tarde o temprano, a la situacin lmite de la autorreferencia : de querer expresarse sobre s mismos. Surge entonces la emocin del infinito, como dos espejos enfrentados y obligados a reflejarse mutua e indefinidamente. Gdel, Escher, Bach: un Eterno y Grcil Bucle, es una obra de arte escrita por un sabio. Versa sobre los misterios del pensamiento e incluye, ella misma, sus propios misterios. / Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this book applies Godel's seminal contribution to modern Twenty years after it topped the bestseller charts, Douglas R. Hofstadter's Gdel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid is still something of a marvel. Besides being a profound and entertaining meditation on human thought and creativity, this book looks at the surprising points of contact between the music of Bach, the artwork of Escher, and the mathematics of Gdel.mathematics to the study of the human mind and the development of artificial intelligence.
