Mentopolis - the intellectual society

Marvin Minsky's most famous book, the Society of Mind written for lay people, is an attempt to explain the brain (human consciousness) as a network of neuronal agents. Taken in isolation, the book is a rejection of the idea of being able to explain human learning with the models of mathematics and computer science.

Mentopolis forms a "whole" by the know-how, the experience of many years and the ideas of your employees.
Our goal is to provide our customers with services of optimum quality and service. A successful project is more than just the delivery of software. Rather, it is a matter of striving for long-term, best possible support of the value chain of our customers.

"Marvin Minsky [...] is one of the most outstanding creators of artificial intelligence. [...] Now, for the first time, he has summarized in one volume his conjectures about how the natural brain, sitting still in its skull, has managed to develop into such a wonderful tool."

"I find Marvin Minsky's Mentopolis a provocative, wonderful, challenging, splendid, comic and generally fascinating book. This book about thinking has certainly changed my thinking."
