A book by Douglas Hofstadter, part of which explains the limits of logical systems. As such, it has significance in relation to Lojban, and especially to the issue being discussed in Lojbanic Qabbalah and Gödel Numbers and Lojban.

- Probably not; it assumes a cultural context into which the examples have to fit. I'm flabbergasted people managed to get it into French. And they had to take considerable liberties to do it.
