麻省理工學院高中開放式課程:哥德爾, 埃舍爾,巴赫:一次心靈太空漫遊 G?del, Escher, Bach: A Mental Space Odyssey 英文版 DVD


What do one mathematician, one artist, and one musician all have in common? Are you interested in zen Buddhism, math, fractals, logic, paradoxes, infinities, art, language, computer science, physics, music, intelligence, consciousness and unified theories ? Get ready to chase me down a rabbit hole into Douglas Hofstadter\'s Pulitzer Prize winning book G?del, Escher, Bach. Lectures will be a place for crazy ideas to bounce around as we try to pace our way through this enlightening tome. You will be responsible for most of the reading as lectures will consist primarily of motivating the material and encouraging discussion. I advise everyone seriously interested to buy the book, grab on and get ready for a mind-expanding voyage into higher dimensions of recursive thinking.
