Douglas Hofstadter is formally trained in math and physics, but his imagination proved too big for one field. He arrived at the intersection of philosophy, linguistics, anthropology, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and psychology known as cognitive science. And he’s been a very effective evangelist for the field. Scientific American called his first book, the Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller Gödel, Escher, Bach, a “major literary event,” and each successive work has been met with eager anticipation.
To mark the occasion, we’re offering 30% off his new book, Surfaces and Essences, coauthored by French psychologist Emmanuel Sander, as well as his three most popular backlist titles, Gödel, Escher, Bach (1979), The Mind’s I (1981), and I Am a Strange Loop (2007): http://powells.us/12FRSGy
