Book Description
Brilliant, shattering, mind-jolting, The Mind`s I is a searching, probing book a cosmic journey of the mind that goes as deeply into problem of self and self-consciousness as anything written in our time. From verbalizing chimpanzees to scientific speculations involving machines with souls, from the mesmerizing, mazelike fiction of Borges to the tantalizing, dreamlike fiction of Lem and his princess ineffable, her circuits glowing red and gold, The Mind`s I Opens the mind to the Black Box of fantasy, to the windfalls of reflection to new dimensions of exciting possibilities. Ever since David Hume declared in the 18th century that the Self is only a heap of perceptions, the poor Ego has been in a shaky condition indeed.
