"The remarkable theorem of incompleteness uncovered an unbridgeable gap in all attempts to systematize mathematical reasoning, a result that appears almost paradoxical." Kurt Gödel is considered.

There’s also Godel’s Theorem: An Incomplete Guide to Its Use and Abuse by Torkel Franzén, which is much less technical and primarily concerns false myths about the incompleteness theorems; in my opinion, it is a good companion (not a substitute) for Smith’s book. Godel's Incompleteness Theorems book. Read 4 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Kurt Godel, the greatest logician of our time, start /5.

Douglas Hofstadter wrote a popular book in called Gödel, Escher, Bach to celebrate the work and ideas of Gödel, along with those of artist M. C. Escher and composer Johann Sebastian Bach. The book partly explores the ramifications of the fact that Gödel's incompleteness theorem can be applied to any Turing-complete computational system, which may include the human Alma mater: University of Vienna. "A gem An unforgettable account of one of the great moments in the history of human thought." —Steven PinkerProbing the life and work of Kurt Gödel, Incompleteness indelibly portrays the tortured genius whose vision rocked the stability of mathematical reasoning— and brought him to the edge of madness.

Motivated in part perhaps by Gödel’s fear of death and feelings of incompleteness in the world (apparently a leitmotif of both Incompleteness book work and life), Gödel found a solution to Einstein’s field equations in which time is cyclical. Towards the end of the book we find a moving account of this contribution of Gödel to Einstein’s by: Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem, which proved that no formal mathematical system can demonstrate every mathematical truth, is a landmark of modern thought.

It's a simple but profound statement, but the technicalities of Gödel's proof are forbidding.4/5(). INCOMPLETENESS is an excellent book about an intellectually elusive subject.

Kurt Godel's fame was established by his proof of something called "the Incompleteness Theorem." His proof employed formal logic to establish a basic truth about mathematics.

Namely, that in closed systems, there will be true statements that cannot be proved.4/5. Incompleteness [Andrew Torrance] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

Gödel’s Incompleteness Theorems First published Mon ; substantive revision Thu Apr 2, Gödel’s two incompleteness theorems are among the most important results in modern logic, and have deep implications for various issues.

They concern the limits of provability in formal axiomatic theories. A beautifully written book on the subject is Incompleteness by Rebecca Goldstein.

He was the greatest logician since Aristotle, as well as Einstein's closest intellectual companion during Einstein's 4/5(16). Unlike most other popular books on Godel's incompleteness theorem, Smulyan's book gives an understandable and fairly complete account of Godel's proof.

No longer must the undergrad fanboy/girl be satisfied in the knowledge that Godel used some system of encoding "Godel numbers" to represent a metamathematical statement with a mathematical by: Aiming to unravel the mystery of quantum mechanics, this book is concerned with questions about action-at-a-distance, holism, and whether quantum mechanics gives a complete account of microphysical reality.

With rigorous arguments and clear thinking, the author provides an introduction to the philosophy of physics. In addition to standard results of Gödel et al. on incompleteness, (non-)finite axiomatizability, and interpretability, this book contains a thorough treatment of partial conservativity and degrees of : Per Lindström.

Gödel showed that Principia, or any other system within which arithmetic can be developed, is essentially incomplete. In other words, given any consistent set of arithmetical axioms, there are true arithmetical statements that cannot be derived from the set/5.
