9780195147216: Collected Works: Volume II: Publications 1938-1974 (Collected Works (Oxford))

Kurt Gödel was the most outstanding logician of the twentieth century, famous for his work on the completeness of logic, the incompleteness of number theory, and the consistency of the axiom of choice and the continuum hypothesis. He is also noted for his work on constructivity, the decision problem, and the foundations of computation theory, as well as for the strong individuality of his writings on the philosophy of mathematics. Less well-known is his discovery of unusual cosmological models for Einstein's equations, permitting "time-travel" into the past.
This second volume of a comprehensive edition of Gödel's works collects together all his publications from 1938 to 1974. Together with Volume I (Publications 1929-1936), it makes available for the first time in a single source all of his previously published work. Continuing the format established in the earlier volume, the present text includes introductory notes that provide extensive explanatory and historical commentary on each of the papers, a facing English translation of the one German original, and a complete bibliography. Succeeding volumes are to contain unpublished manuscripts, lectures, correspondence, and extracts from the notebooks.
Collected Works is designed to be accessible and useful to as wide an audience as possible without sacrificing scientific or historical accuracy. The only complete edition available in English, it will be an essential part of the working library of professionals and students in logic, mathematics, philosophy, history of science, and computer science. These volumes will also interest scientists and all others who wish to be acquainted with one of the great minds of the twentieth century.

Review:


"I was initially inspired for this review when I happened to pick up Volume 2 of Kurt Godel's Collected Works: anyone with a serious interest in the intellectual history of the 20th century should do the same. Godel's famous proof of the incompleteness of arithmetic is arguably the most famous theorem of our century . . . . These volumes are intended for the mainstream and they succeed admirably; Solomon Feferman and his distinguished board of editors have produced a collected works that is a model for all such endeavors. The collection is beautifully designed; I congratulate Oxford University Press on the high quality with which every detail is executed. Papers originally written in German are translated on facing pages, and it really is "complete" . . . . The introductory material is profuse and worth the price on its own . . . . Godel was a meticulous writer, and with some excellent editorial handling, the proof is a pleasure to read." --A.I. Expert

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Kurt Godel (1906 - 1978) was the most outstanding logician of the twentieth century, famous for his hallmark works on the completeness of logic, the incompleteness of number theory, and the consistency of the axiom of choice and the continuum hypothesis. He is also noted for his work on constructivity, the decision problem, and the foundations of computability theory, as well as for the strong individuality of his writings on the philosophy of mathematics. He is less well known for his discovery of unusual cosmological models for Einstein s equations, in theory permitting time travel into the past. The Collected Works is a landmark resource that draws together a lifetime of creative thought and accomplishment. The first two volumes were devoted to Godel s publications in full (both in original and translation), and the third volume featured a wide selection of unpublished articles and lecture texts found in Godel s Nachlass. These long-awaited final two volumes contain Godel s correspondence of logical, philosophical, and scientific interest. Volume IV covers A to G, with H to Z in volume V; in addition, Volume V contains a full inventory of Godel s Nachlass. All volumes include introductory notes that provide extensive explanatory and historical commentary on each body of work, English translations of material originally written in German (some transcribed from the Gabelsberger shorthand), and a complete bibliography of all works cited. Kurt Godel: Collected Works is designed to be useful and accessible to as wide an audience as possible without sacrificing scientific or historical accuracy. The only comprehensive edition of Godel s work available, it will be an essential part of the working library of professionals and students in logic, mathematics, philosophy, history of science, and computer science and all others who wish to be acquainted with one of the great minds of the twentieth century.
