Hofstadter's book elevates recursion (in the broadest sense of
self-reference) to exalted heights, leading to Andrew Plotkin's recursive
definition of recursion: "If you already know what recursion is, just
remember the answer. Otherwise, find someone who is standing closer to
Douglas Hofstadter than you are; then ask him or her what recursion is."
