Recommends it for: The dedicated
Recommended to Andrew by: Douglas Hofstadter
Basically round 2 of the Critique of Pure Reason. I haven't looked into many other accounts of mathematical logic, but if it was good enough to influence Douglas Hofstadter, it has earned the admiration of this reader. Read it and experience a queasy sensation as you witness the collapse of your epistemological absolutes. Alternatively, become lost in the book's maze of complex symbolism. I'll definitely have to read this one a second time.
