Hofstadter, Douglas -- I Am A Strange Loop

Hofstadter writes more Hofstadter. I'm okay with that; it's been a while. He gets back to the ideas about consciousness that were presented in GEB, without all the mathematical and artistic digression along the way. (If you liked the digressions, well, that's what GEB was for.) Like Le Ton beau..., this book is about his personal life -- in particular the loss of his wife -- as much as about philosophy. This may seem strange, but all the way back to GEB, Hofstadter has been the most personal of theorists. I don't agree with everything in Strange Loop, but whatever it is, I am interested that Hofstadter thinks so.
