Philosophy of mathematics; selected readings by Paul Benacerraf( Book )

69 editions published between 1964 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The twentieth century has witnessed an unprecedented 'crisis in the foundations of mathematics', featuring a world-famous paradox (Russell's Paradox), a challenge to 'classical' mathematics from a world-famous mathematician (the 'mathematical intuitionism' of Brouwer), a new foundational school (Hilbert's Formalism), and the profound incompleteness results of Kurt Gödel. In the same period, the cross-fertilization of mathematics and philosophy resulted in a new sort of 'mathematical philosophy', associated most notably (but in different ways) with Bertrand Russell, W. V. Quine, and Gödel himself, and which remains at the focus of Anglo-Saxon philosophical discussion. The present collection brings together in a convenient form the seminal articles in the philosophy of mathematics by these and other major thinkers. It is a substantially revised version of the edition first published in 1964 and includes a revised bibliography. The volume will be welcomed as a major work of reference at this level in the field

Time, causality, and the quantum theory : studies in the philosophy of science by Henry Mehlberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An intermittent but mentally quite disabling illness prevented Henry Mehlberg from becoming recognized more widely as the formidable scholar he was, when at his best. During World War II, he had lived in hiding under the false identity of an egg farmer, when the Nazis occupied his native Poland. After relatively short academic appointments at the University of Toronto and at Princeton University, he taught at the University of Chicago until reaching the age of normal retirement. But partly at the initiative of his Chicago colleague Charles Morris, who had preceded him to a 'post-retirement' profes sorship at the University of Florida in Gainesville, and with the support of Eugene Wigner, he then received an appointment at that University, where he remained until his death in 1979. In Chicago, he organized a discussion group of scholars from that area as a kind of small scale model of the Vienna Circle, which met at his apart ment, where he lived with his first wife Janina, a mathematician. It was during this Chicago period that the functional disturbances from his illness were pronounced and not infrequent. The very unfortunate result was that colleagues who had no prior knowledge of the caliber of his writings in Polish and French or of his very considerable intellectual powers, had little incentive to read his published work, which he had begun to write in English

This report summarizes the work done to date on a study of resource allocation in universities. This report specifically is concerned with budgeting and resource allocation at Princeton University. The document consists of 4 sections. The first section deals with the process of budgeting at Princeton as it has evolved over the last 4 years. After a brief discussion of the functions of all budget systems, the main features are described of the budgeting process as it existed at Princeton during the 1960'S. The second section consists of a reprint of the Report of the Priorities Committee to the President: Recommendations Concerning the Budget for Fiscal Year 1971-72. Section iii consists of the 1972-73 Report of the Priorities Committee to the President. This report shows the position of the University budget one year later and contains some comments on conclusions reached and lessons learned in the intervening period. The final section deals with program budgeting and long-range planning. It contains some tables and calculations showing the distribution of expenditures and income among broad program categories.
