it was amazing

For someone who's interested in Artificial Intelligence, you have not to just be acquainted with Epistemology, but to have a deeper understanding of this topic because if you don't understand what knowledge, consciousness, wisdom, experience, intuition, salience, and intelligence are, then you are not ready for the real challenges of AI.
Although this book by one Ayn Rand sure isn't the best book for you to grasp all of what Epistemology has to offer, it is still the best book if you need a smart simpler guide to be prepared for what lies ahead, to grasp the idea of consciousness, the different stages of it, how the brain of a child perceives different units -and what units are-, what the concept-formation process is, and why concepts are such an important part of how you perceive reality.
