Le Ton Beau de Marot: In Praise of the Music of Language


Show Synopsis

Artificial intelligence pioneer Douglas R. Hofstadter celebrates the infinite subtleties of human creativity through language and translation in this brilliant successor to his GODEL, ESCHER, BACH. French poet Clement Marot's tiny poem "A une Damoyselle malade", written some 400 years ago, is the unlikely launching point for Hofstadter's latest exploration of the power of human thought.

Hofstadter's creation

I bought this book because of the author name -- Douglas R. Hofstadter, his earlier books had content which was interesting from the viewpoint of my scientific work. The book is nice food for thought.
