Through illustration and analysis, the book discusses how self-reference and formal rules allow systems to acquire meaning despite being made of "meaningless" elements. It also discusses what it means to communicate, how knowledge can be represented and stored, the methods and limitations of symbolic representation, and even the fundamental notion of "meaning" itself.

The most mind-blowing book ever written. A true intellectual trip. It's roughly about the structure of self-awareness, and it won a Pulitzer.
