Alan Turing (1912-1954) made seminal contributions to mathematical logic, computation, computer science, artificial intelligence, cryptography and theoretical biology. In this volume, outstanding scientific thinkers take a fresh look at the great range of Turing's contributions, on how the subjects have developed since his time, and how they might develop still further. The contributors include Martin Davis, J. M. E. Hyland, Andrew R. Booker, Ueli Maurer, Kanti V. Mardia, S. Barry Cooper, Stephen Wolfram, Christof Teuscher, Douglas Richard Hofstadter, Philip K. Maini, Thomas E. Woolley, Eamonn A. Gaffney, Ruth E. Baker, Richard Gordon, Stuart Kauffman, Scott Aaronson, Solomon Feferman, P. D. Welch and Roger Penrose. These specially commissioned essays will provoke and engross the reader who wishes to understand better the lasting significance of one of the twentieth century's deepest thinkers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The 15 highly readable essays gathered here, each worth a review, celebrate Turing's centenary by exploring current developments and philosophical ramifications descending from many sides of Turing's work, not just his famous theory of computation and his code-breaking exploits but also his interests in logic, artificial intelligence, morphogenesis, pattern formation, the Riemann hypothesis, etc ... Summing Up: Recommended. All readers.' D. V. Feldman, CHOICE
'The book under review is a collection of 15 papers written by outstanding scientists. It gives a look at the range of A. M. Turing's contributions and shows how the subjects have been developed since his time and how they might develop still further. The papers are divided into five groups. ... Papers collected in this volume will be interesting to all readers who wish to under-stand better the lasting significance of Alan Turing and his ideas.' Roman Murawski, Mathematical Reviews
