Product Details

Praise

Yanofsky takes on this mindboggling subject with confidence and impressive clarity. He eases the reader into the subject matter, ending each chapter with further readings. His book is a fascinating resource for anyone who seeks a better understanding of the world through the strangeness of its own limitations and a must-read for anyone studying information science.—Publishers Weekly, (starred review)

Yanofsky provides an entertaining and informative whirlwind trip through limits on reason in language, formal logic, mathematics—and in science, the culmination of humankind’s attempts to reason about the world.

The New Scientist

In my view, Outer Limits is an extraordinary, and extraordinarily interesting, book. It is a cornucopia of mind-bending ideas.

Raymond S. Nickerson, PsycCRITIQUES

The scope of the material covered is so wide, and the writing so clear and intuitive, that all readers will learn something new and stimulating.

Thomas Colin, Leonardo Reviews
