Philosophy Book Discussion Group

The Philosophy Book Discussion Group will continue their discussion The Tides of Mind: Uncovering the Spectrum of Consciousness by David Gelernter (Liveright, $17.95). The holy grail since the beginning of artificial intelligence has been to replicate thought patterns of the human mind. Challenging the notion that this can ever be achieved through state-of-the-art research, David Gelernter turns to literature. Gelernter's landmark "spectrum of consciousness" decodes some of the deepest, most mysterious aspects of the human mind, such as the numinous light of early childhood, why sadism and masochism underpin some of our greatest artistic achievements, and why dreams often do predict the future.
