Last year I pointed to MIT’s programme dedicated to Douglas Hofstadter’s Gödel, Escher, Bach—the Pulitzer Prize-winning book on cognition that defies categorisation.
Just to update you on GEB news; MIT have now produced a series of video lectures dedicated to the book. (6 lectures, each approx. 1 hour in length.)
(I have a sort of love-hate relationship with GEB: I know I’m going to love it, but I hate the fact that for the last 18 months the book’s been staring at me, tempting me to pick it up, while I’ve been getting through my book ‘backlog’.)
