G÷del, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden/Hofstadter, Do/Paper/0140289208/S026-B
Linking the music of J.S. Bach, the graphic art of Escher and the mathematical theorems of G÷del, as well as ideas drawn form logic, biology, psychology, physics and linguistics, Douglas Hofstadter illuminates one of the greatest mysteries of modern science: the nature of human thought processes.
His momentous and by now famous book has much in common with the works of Lewis Carroll. Lucid and witty, drawing together an astonishing range of ideas, it is at once an entertainment, a brilliant literary achievement and a triumph of the imagination.
(alternative spelling: Godel)
