Dirk Huylebrouck, Afrika + Wiskunde

In Ishango, een dorp in het oorlogsgebied op de grens tussen Congo en Oeganda, werd een 22000 jaar oud bot gevonden met wiskundig intrigerende kerven. De auteur verdedigt een nieuwe hypothese van Belgisch kandidaat-astronaut Pletser, dat dit bot geen maankalender is, noch getuigt van een rekenspel met priemgetallen, maar een eenvoudige telstaaf is, van een volk dat op een niet-Westerse wijze telde. Anders-Gaan-Tellen, het is niet zo gek: de ‘Black Mathematics’ zijn in de VS reeds lang gebruikelijk.

Timothy R. Colburn, Philosophy and Computer Science

This volume is about the philosophical foundations of artificial intelligence in particular and computer science in general, and the contributions that philosophy and computer science can make to each other. It asks where computer science fits as a science, how philosophy can guide computer science, and how work in computer science can shape one’s philosophy.

His search focused specially on the theory and implications of infinity. He was a pioneer in this field, but had to pay for the depth of his thinking with recurring spells of insanity.
