Mathematics in philosophy : selected essays by
Charles Parsons(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book by an American philosopher brings together eleven essays treating problems in logic and the philosophy of mathematics. A common point of view, that the mathematical thought is central to our thought in general, underlies the essays. In his introduction, Parsons articulates that point of view and relates it to past and recent discussions of the foundations of mathematics."Jacket

From Kant to Husserl : selected essays by
Charles Parsons(
Book
)
17 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Main description: In From Kant to Husserl, Charles Parsons examines a wide range of historical opinion on philosophical questions, from mathematics to phenomenology. Amplifying his early ideas on Kant's philosophy of arithmetic, Parsons uses Kant's lectures on metaphysics to explore how his arithmetical concepts relate to the categories. He then turns to early reactions by two immediate successors of Kant, Johann Schultz and Bernard Bolzano, to shed light on disputed questions regarding interpretation of Kant's philosophy of mathematics. Interested, as well, in what Kant meant by 0pure natural science,0 Parsons considers the relationship between the first Critique and the Metaphysical Foundations of Natural Science. His commentary on Kant's Transcendental Aesthetic departs from mathematics to engage the vexed question of what it tells about the meaning of Kant's transcendental idealism.Proceeding on to phenomenology, Parsons examines Frege's evolving idea of extensions, his attitude toward set theory, and his correspondence, particularly exchanges with Russell and Husserl. An essay on Brentano brings out, in the case of judgment, an alternative to the now standard Fregean view of negation, and, on truth, alternatives to the traditional correspondence view that are still discussed today. Ending with the question of why Husserl did not take the 0linguistic turn,0 a final essay included here marks the only articlelength discussion of Husserl Parsons has ever written, despite a longstanding engagement with this philosopher

Kurt Gödel : essays for his centennial by
Solomon Feferman(
Book
)
16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Kurt G̈odel (19061978) did groundbreaking work that transformed logic and other important aspects of our understanding of mathematics, especially his proof of the incompleteness of formalized arithmetic. This book on different aspects of his work and on subjects in which his ideas have contemporary resonance includes papers from a May 2006 symposium celebrating G̈odel's centennial as well as papers from a 2004 symposium. Proof theory, set theory, philosophy of mathematics, and the editing of G̈odel's writings are among the topics covered. Several chapters discuss his intellectual development and his relation to predecessors and contemporaries such as Hilbert, Carnap, and Herbrand. Others consider his views on justification in set theory in light of more recent work and contemporary echoes of his incompleteness theorems and the concept of constructible set"Provided by publisher

Philosophy of mathematics in the twentieth century : selected essays by
Charles Parsons(
Book
)
14 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this illuminating collection, Charles Parsons surveys the contributions of philosophers and mathematicians who shaped the philosophy of mathematics over the course of the past century. Parsons begins with a discussion of the Kantian legacy in the work of L.E.J. Brouwer, David Hilbert, and Paul Bernays, shedding light on how Bernays revised his philosophy after his collaboration with Hilbert. He considers Hermann Weyl's idea of a "vicious circle" in the foundations of mathematics, a radical claim that elicited many challenges. Turning to Kurt Gödel, whose incompleteness theorem transformed debate on the foundations of mathematics and brought mathematical logic to maturity, Parsons discusses his essay on Bertrand Russell's mathematical logic  Gödel's first mature philosophical statement and an avowal of his Platonistic view
