Book recommendation:

BLINDSIGHT

Peter Watts
Paperback
ISBN 0765319640
Buy on Amazon /UK

 

I will love this book forever for embedding a college seminar in philosophy of mind (google "Chinese Room" for a taste) in a pitiless hard-sci-fi story about first contact with inscrutable aliens (also: AI, resurrected vampires, cyborgs). Think Solaris × Aliens × Neuromancer. Shit, I might just re-read it right now. Full text, sanctioned by the author: http://www.rifters.com/real/Blindsight.htm
