Gödel, Escher, Bach Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid, also known as GEB, is a 1979 book by Douglas Hofstadter. The tagline "a metaphorical fugue on minds and machines in the spirit of Lewis Carroll" was used by the publisher to describe the book.[1] By exploring common themes in the lives and works of logician Kurt Gödel, artist M. C. In response to confusion over the book's theme, Hofstadter has emphasized that Gödel, Escher, Bach is not about the relationships of mathematics, art, and music, but rather about how cognition emerges from hidden neurological mechanisms. Structure[edit] Gödel, Escher, Bach takes the form of an interweaving of various narratives. One dialogue in the book is written in the form of a crab canon, in which every line before the midpoint corresponds to an identical line past the midpoint. Themes[edit] Puzzles[edit] The book is filled with puzzles, such as Hofstadter's MU puzzle. Impact[edit] Translation[edit] See also[edit] Notes[edit] References[edit] Bibliography[edit]
