This book is aimed at the Prolog programmer interested in either building expert systems or experimenting with various expert system techniques. Dennis Merritt chooses a step-by-step approach to building systems, explaining the concepts and showing the Prolog code at each stage. The book builds on simple beginning systems and progresses up to relatively sophisticated expert system tools. It does not emphasize techniques of logic programming or the particularities of Prolog, but rather, emphasizes Prolog as an efficient software development tool, and teaches how to build expert systems and design the necessary tools. It is recommended (but not required) that the reader use a Prolog interpreter along with reading this book to experiment with the various Prolog examples given throughout the text.
Dennis Merritt, Ph.D., LCSW, is a Jungian psychoanalyst and ecopsychologist in private practice in Madison and Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Dream work and use of the I Ching in analysis are his fortes, and he incorporates sandplay therapy into his work as a subtle yet powerful form of active imagination. He integrates elements of psychoanalytic, psychodynamic, brief therapy and Winnicott into a Jungian ecopsychological perspective. Over twenty years of participation in Lakota Sioux ceremonies have strongly influenced his worldview.Dennis Merritt is a diplomate of the C.G. Jung Institute, Zurich and also holds the following degrees: M.A. Humanistic Psychology-Clinical, Sonoma State University, California, Ph.D. Insect Pathology, University of California-Berkeley. M.S.
