Description

With contributions from Jorge Luis Borges, Richard Dawkins, John Searle, and Robert Nozick, The Mind’s I explores the meaning of self and consciousness through the perspectives of literature, artificial intelligence, psychology, and other disciplines. In selections that range from fiction to scientific speculations about thinking machines, artificial intelligence, and the nature of the brain, Hofstadter and Dennett present a variety of conflicting visions of the self and the soul as explored through the writings of some of the twentieth century’s most renowned thinkers.
