The Software Revelation
What Computer Code Can Teach Us About Transcendence in a Post-Religious World
Software is everywhere. Yet software doesn’t exist. At least not in the way we typically think about things existing.
Starting from this simple truth, The Software Revelation takes you on a highly entertaining and thought-provoking journey through the questions people have been asking since the beginning of time about the world and about themselves. Expertly drawing on insights from computer science, philosophy, linguistics, physics, religion, and the arts, The Software Revelation helps readers of all backgrounds, education levels, and viewpoints clarify the ideas that form the foundation of their belief-systems.
The Software Revelation is also a great text to use as a teaching tool or for book discussion groups for those who want to delve into deeper waters without having to slog through the works of Kant, Derrida, and other key thinkers whose writing can be almost impossible for the average reader to get through.
