Product description


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 *
