Gödel, Escher, Bach

Gödel, Escher, Bach is the first book I read after many years on non-reading / studying, besides trying to stay on top of the ever faster changing world of IT and systems development. I read GEB in English which is a foreign language for me, so it was hard for more than one reason. But reading it felt like an adventure and it fueled my dream of studying mathematics.

And now MIT made a series of six video lectures about the book. Haven't seen it yet but I expect them to be interesting. Gödel's incompleteness theorem is a topic in the course Number Theory and Logic which is part of my course plan.

  1. It is a brilliant book -- full of ideas about maths, computing, AI and fun.
    I wish I still had my Dad's copy[!]

    Thanks for the link to the videos.

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
