About this title


Jean van Heijenoort (1912 -1986) was best known as a historian of logic and was most recognized for his influential anthology From Frege to Goedel collecting many of the research papers that shaped the early history of mathematical logic. His own contributions to mathematical logic, especially to the falsifiability tree method, hitherto generally unknown, are detailed here by van Heijenoort's last doctoral student.

Anellis discusses van Heijenoort's academic life and scholarly career. His central themes are van Heijenoort's contributions to mathematical logic and to the study of its history. He uses van Heijenoort's publications, classroom lectures, and unpublished notes and manuscripts to detail these. Also covered are van Heijenoort's education, his development as a teacher, logician and historian of logic, and his views on philosophy of logic and mathematics.


This volume is certainly a major contribution to the quickly developing historiography of modern logic, full of information, both important and rare, for the logician, the historian and the philosopher of logic, and even for mathematicians and philosophers at large. -- Ignacio Angelelli (University of Texas at Austin), Mathematical Reviews 96a, MR #96a:03001
