Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beginning with a short biography of Kurt Go del, "Go del's Theorem in Focus" provides the reader with a clear guide to the mechanics of Go del's proof in a format intelligible to the non-mathematician. The book moves on to explanations of the mechanics of Go del's proof and its significance for mathematical logic and the philosophy of mathematics. In the final section, S. G. Shanker presents a major new critique of Go del's theorem.

Synopsis:

A layman's guide to the mechanics of Godel's proof together with a discussion of the issues which it raises. Includes an essay discussing the significance of Godel's work in the light of Wittgenstein's criticisms.
