Book Description: TUSQUETS, Spain, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 157 mm. Brand New Book. This is no small thing to investigate whether an identity-soul or consciousness I - can emerge from simple matter. From the soup of particles, a deeper level, is the human brain, ascend to a jungle of neurons and, further, to a network of abstractions we call symbols, the more complex and momentous of which is the I , that strange loop in the brain where it is ultimately the physical and symbolic levels. Curiously symbols seem to hold free and have the paradoxical property of the particles to drive and not the other way around. How can it be a real mysterious abstraction like that? How do we reflect to other beings in our minds? Can they co-exist in our brains different loops of various strangers intensity ? For questions and mysteries as they faced Douglas Hofstadter in this fascinating test of truffle anecdotes, metaphors and analogies that have made him famous . and understandable to the layman. A style of writing essays, entertaining, provocative, committed, which, like the classics of philosophy, it gives food for thought. Bookseller Inventory # PEA9788483830871

Book Description: TusQuets Editores, 2008. soft. Book Condition: New. Con la ambiciosa intención de explorar el complejo concepto del yo desde el punto de vista científico , Douglas R. Hofstadter retoma y amplía una de las ideas fundamentales que presentó en su aclamada obra Gödel , Escher , Bach: el paralelismo entre el hallazgo de Gödel de una autorreferencia surgida de un sustrato de símbolos sin significado y la milagrosa aparición de egos y almas a partir de sustratos de materia inanimada, donde residiría el secreto de nuestro sentido del « yo ». La tarea de reseguir los múltiples meandros de ese « extraño bucle» sólo podía abordarla un genio de intereses multidisciplinares como Hofstadter . No es poca cosa investigar si una identidad – alma , conciencia o « yo »– puede emerger de la simple materia . De la sopa de partículas que, a un nivel más profundo , es el cerebro humano , ascendemos a una selva de neuronas y, aún más allá, a una red de abs tracciones que denominamos « símbolos », el más complejo y trascendental de los cuales es el « yo », ese extraño bucle en el cerebro en el que se realimentan los niveles simbólicos y físicos . Curiosamente los símbolos parecen poseer libre albedrío y tener la paradójica propiedad de impulsar a las partículas y no al revés. ¿ Cómo puede ser real una misteriosa abstracción como ésa ? ¿ Cómo reflejamos a otros seres en nuestra mente ? ¿ Pueden coexistir en nuestro cerebro diversos bucles extraños de distinta « intensidad »? A preguntas y misterios como éstos se enfrenta Douglas Hofstadter en este apasionante ensayo trufado de las anécdotas , metáforas y analogías que le han hecho famoso . . . y comprensible para el profano. Un estilo de escribir ensayos – ameno , provocativo , comprometido – que, como los clásicos de la filosofía , da que pensar. Bookseller Inventory # 1473883
