„Golem XIV” is one of Lem's most far-fetched intellectual adventures:  for the purpose of this book Lem constructs the character of a supercomputer of the future that infinitely overshadows human intelligence.  Golem, whose history we follow from its birth until his inexplicable departure from the human world, not only mercilessly criticizes humanity, claims of our culture and delusions about allegedly refining mechanisms of evolution, but also creates a breathtaking vision of further development of artificial intelligence – beyond our cosmos and cognition available within its limits.

Wonderful Mirror showing overestimation of human condition Reviewed by Dr. Andreas Salzmann on . Thanks to Mr. Lem for giving us one more opportunity to understand how ridiculous and inappropriate the overestimation of our capabilities is. Golem shows us our picture in the mirror and helps us to understand much better what we are and what we never will be. It was a great pleasure and a very helpful philosophical lesson for me. Great book, outstanding author ! Rating: 5 5
