Godel, Escher, Bach - An Eternal Golden Braid
Publisher: Douglas R. Hofstadter | ISBN: N\A | edition 1996 | File type: PDF | 801 pages | 21,4 mb

The book opens with the story of Bach's Musical Offering. Bach made an impromptu visit to King Frederick the Great of Prussia, and was requested to improvise upon a theme presented by the King. His improvisations formed the basis of that great work. The Musical Offering and its story form a theme upon which I "improvise" throughout the book, thus making a sort of "Metamusical Offering". Self-reference and the interplay between different levels in Bach are discussed: this leads to a discussion of parallel ideas in Escher's drawings and then Gödel’s Theorem. A brief presentation of the history of logic and paradoxes is given as background for Gödel’s Theorem.
