Reviews

“The book provides, probably for the first time, not only all the elements necessary for assessing the full importance of Turing’s legacy but also fundamental lines of thought for connecting his work with new research perspectives. It will be an indispensable reference for understanding and developing all the concepts and ideas introduced by Turing.” (Jean-Marc Ginoux, Isis, Vol. 110 (4), 2019)
