'Nerdy' bir bilimcinin en ilginç kitaplarından birinde saf matematik ve saf kod iç içe geçerse…

Kitaptan bir alıntı:

Post Scriptum.

In March of 1977, I met the great AI pioneer Marvin Minsky for the first Time. It was an unforgettable experience. One of the most memorable remarks he made to me was this one: “Gödel should just have thought up Lisp; it would have made the proof of his theorem much easier.” I knew exactly what Minksy meant by that, I could see a grain of truth in it, and moreover I knew it had been made with tongue in semi cheek. Still, something about this remark drove me crazy. It made me itch to say a million things at once, and thus left me practically speechless. Finally today, after my seven-year itch, I will say some of the things I would have loved to say then.

Kaynak: Hofstadter, D. R., 1985, “Metamagical Themas: Questing for the Essence of Mind and Pattern“, s. 444-445

SN:

(levenshtein-distance "Mathematical Games" "Metamagical Themas")
8

SSN: Kitap, yazarın Scientific American dergisinde bir süre yazdığı “Metamagical Themas” köşesinden makaleleri de içeriyor. Benzer yerde daha önce Martin Gardner yazıyor ve köşesinin ismi de “Mathematical Games” imiş. Hofstadter, Gardner’a olan saygısından ötürü ona göndermede bulunmak ama bir yandan da kendi kişiliğini ortaya koymak icin eski kose başlığının harflerinin yerini değiştirip yeni ve anlamlı bir başlık oluşturmuş.
