“Analogy as the Core of Cognition”
Douglas Hofstadter
Monday, January 31st- 7:00pm
Templeton Campus Center, Council Chamber

Hofstadter holds a M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from University of Oregon and a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Stanford University. He is the author of Goedel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid; I am a Strange Loop; Le Ton beau de Marot, and The Mind’s I, among others. Hofstadter’s interests concerning the human mind are varied, ranging from errors as a window on the mind, to the mechanisms of creativity, to the nature of consciousness. Currently his most active goal is to reveal how analogy-making lies at the base of all human thought. Hofstadter also has an interest in languages and translation.
