Hofstadter, Douglas

I Am a Strange Loop

Doug Hofstadter’s book, I am a Strange Loop, expounds upon and is to some degree a sequal to his 1979 book, Godel, Escher and Bach. I am a strange loop focuses on personal identity, the sense of “I ” that we all share. This book examines consciousness from many different angles. It is intriguing and thought provoking.
