Brilliant, shattering, mind-jolting, The Mind’s I is a searching, probing book—a cosmic journey of the mind—that goes as deeply into the 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.
