Gelernter, David Hillel.:  The muse in the machine : computers and creative thought
Book Number: 29804
London Fourth Estate 1994 8vo hardcover 211pp index. very good+ / very good+ d/w. Designed for a wide audience, this book claims that the standard approach to human thought is wrong in fundamental ways. The author challenges, in particular, the views of Daniel Dennett ("Consciousness Explained") and Roger Penrose ("The Emperor's New Mind"): first, emotion is a necessary part of thought and so a thinking computer will not be possible until a feeling computer is possible; second, reasoning, logic and analysis are only part of the way we think - there are also other kinds of thinking, such as poetic and religious; third, the nature of thought is intertwined with the nature of art. He also discusses philosophy, psychology, technology, art and literature, in particular the poetry of Wordsworth, Blake, Keats and the Bible.

Gottlieb, Roger S.:  History and Subjectivity: The Transformation of Marxist Theory
Book Number: 41175
Temple Univ Press 1987 8vo hardcover 318pp index, b/w illus. very good+ / very good d/w. Can Marxism still serve the American left? History and Subjectivity answers this question by synthesizing the conflicting perspectives of traditional Marxism, Western and neo-Marxism, socialist-feminism, and various minority political movements into a comprehensive and original social theory. nnIn the last seventy years, social change and the failure of leftist movements have made it necessary to transform Marxist theory. Undermined by its own theoretical success, traditional Marxism mistakenly assumed that Marx's understanding of competitive capitalism could be the model for theories of any society. Roger Gottlieb argues convincingly that the transformation of Marxist theory requires a fundamentally new understanding of social primacy. nnGottlieb draws on resources from virtually all areas of contemporary radical social theory. This interdisciplinary approach results in a sweeping synthesis of existing Marxist thought and an original and compelling social theory. nnFrom the PublishernAn original social theory synthesizing conflicting perspectives of Marxism
