That is their wheelhouse when it comes to writing, but they obviously don’t manage it here because they don’t have the time to develop their own ideas and the inclusion of a good deal of hofxtadter work forces them to bounce around to subjects that, while interesting, are not developed enough to be satisfying.

Harold Morowitz’s “Rediscovering the Mind” is a great comparison of the role of an “observer” in quantum physics with the increasing reductionism in biology that leaves no place menge consciousness.

We have very unsatisfactory models for emotion and language. Does anybody know if there has been made an audio book version of The Mind’s I? Very little as it turns out, but enough to rule out, according to the authors, antiquated ideas about soul. Although you may not agree with the philosphical angle of each essay, you won’t be able to honestly disagree without having your own cognition and philosophical I first read “The Mind’s I” in high school and regularly reread its various essays.


When we pose that question ourselves it is comparitively easy to cast around for answers when we already know ways in which it can be applied. Feb 27, Jonathan rated it liked it. Sitting here having just closed the book, the impression I take away from it is that sections that could have made their points more succinctly rambled on and on, overloading the many papers – Dawkins, Nozick, Searle, Dennett’s himself – that didn’t outstay their welcome.

My only complaint is that some of the works e. To give someone else a response such as “it teaches us to analyse arguments” is rarely helpful. Obra de arte, texto asombrosamente documentado, El ojo de la mente no puede sino seducir a una amplia gama de lectores: To cut to the chase, I am doubtful that the “problem of consciousness” really is such an interesting philosophical problem any more.

It’s like you are normally walking around your daily life zoomed into YOUR life, your problems, your existence, but then this book comes along and helps you zoom out. A masterpiece of erudition and clarity.

Hofstadter is the son of Nobel Prize-winning physicist Robert Hofstadter. Some time after giving me this book, she married, had a baby With these intuitions as guides, Hofstadter and the members of the Fluid Analogies Research Group have developed computer models that operate in small but extraordinarily challenging domains: All of those works develop many of the same ideas that are in the book, but in more depth and with some thought that is easier to track.

Giovanni Astengo keeps his life at arm’s length: Open Preview See a Problem? Which body is my body? But I think that’s no longer true. This is a book to look at the study of consciousness as a general whole; more specifically, the problems any study of consciousness runs into. After all, aren’t we humans super-complex biological machines? You will, it must be said, probably not come away from a reading with a clear answer as to the nature of the self, the seat and origin of consciousness or whether the Matrix has us.


Butterfly in the quantum world: I don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing but I think it does a good job of expanding ima collection of philosophical think pieces and science fiction stories that touch upon consciousness, the self, identity, Artificial intelligence and animal consciousness. I was given this book as a gift from one of the most interesting persons I’ve ever known.

Dai racconti di Lem ai dialoghi di Hofstadter, passando per le riflessioni orientaleggianti di Smullyan, non mancano classici della letteratura scientifica in generale come “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” di Turing o “Geni Egoisti” di Dawkins: I might enjoy the material more if I did not find the underlying premise an offense.
