Description

In 1931 Kurt Godel published a revolutionary paper - one that challenged certain basic assumptions underlying much traditional research in mathematics and logic. Today his exploration of terra incognita has been recognized as one of the major contributions to modern scientific thought. It is exciting and accessible. There have been other introductory books on Godel but none that conveys a sense of the theorem and its import to someone with little or no logic.' - Bill Newton-Smith, Balliol College, Oxfordshow more
