Wang, H. Reflections on Kurt Gödel
Hao Wang. Reflections on Kurt Gödel
Kurt Gödel was indisputably one of the greatest thinkers of our time, and in this first extended treatment of his life and work, Hao Wang, who was in close contact with Gödel in his last years, brings out the full subtlety of Gödel's ideas and their connection with grand themes in the history of mathematics and philosophy. The subjects he covers include the completeness of elementary logic, the limits of formalization, the problem of evidence, the concept of set, the philosophy of mathematics, time and relativity theory, metaphysics, and religion, as well as general ideas on philosophy as a worldview.
