*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

The editors did an excellent job! ... The five volumes of Goedel's Collected Works, being the best way of honouring Goedel, will certainly serve all researchers interested in the field of mathematical logic and the foundations of mathematics as well as the philosophy of mathematics and history of logic. * Zentralblatt MATH * The publication of five volumes of Goedel's Collected Works is doubtlessly a marvellous achievement. * Zentralblatt MATH * Each item in the volume (Volume III) carries an introduction written by a leading expert, and there are detailed textual notes at the end of the book. The editorial standards are extremely high throughout. * London Mathematical Society, 1997 * The book (Volume III) ... will certainly enlarge our appreciation of Goedel's scientific and philosophical thought as well as our understanding of his motivations. * Mathematical Reviews, Issue 96f * (For Volume III) This is the third volume of a comprehensive and critical edition of the works of Kurt Goedel. . .All these essays and lectures are most carefully written and remarkably rich. They give considerable insight into Goedel's own achievements in logic, set theory and physics and also into his philosophical views. . . .This volume was a desideratum for a long time. We also hope very strongly that volume 3 is not the last volume. * Vienna Circle Institute Yearbook 1997 * It is a fascinating and enduringly important collection, superbly well-edited, each paper being prefaced with an excellent intoduction providing background information, summaries of the arguments and, where necessary, criticisms of the views expressed. The editors are to be wholeheartedly congratulated on bringing to the public work which deserves careful study and which ought to do something to revitalise the philosophy of mathematics by presenting a point of viewthat, unusually, combines intellectual rigour with a willingness to make bold and metaphysical claims. * Times Higher Education Supplement, 15 March 1996 * Anyone interested in the life and work of Kurt Goedel, or in the history of mathematical logic in this century, is indebted to all of the contributors to this volume (volume I)for the care with which they have presented Goedel's work. They have succeeded in using their own expertise to elucidate both the nature and the significance of what Goedel and, in turn, mathematical logic have accomplished. From the example of this first volume, the editionpromises to be a model of its kind; virtually nothing could be bettered. Feferman and his team are to be congratulated on the care, sureness of touch, and scholarly accuracy with which they have carried out their task. * Mind * These volumes contain, as well as the doctoral dissertation and a hitherto unpublished revision of a translation of the Dialectica paper, all of Goedel's work printed in his lifetime. The volumes are meticulously edited and are a pleasure to consult. Original page numbers are clearly shown; papers written in German are printed with facing translations. * Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 24 (1992) * This is the second volume of this impressive series of Goedel's works ... this second volume of his published works is really fundamental, as it was only in this period that Godel decided to make public some traits of his philosophical position ... The introductory note to these writings, by R. Solovay, seems to me historically and technically superb. I congratulate the editorial team for including in this volume the improved 1972 version of the Dialectica paperof 1958 on finitary mathematics ... As a whole, the book is absolutely indispensable for anyone interested in Goedel's ideas, or generally on the history and philosophy of logic and mathematics. * Modern Logic, Volume 4, no. 3 (July 1994) * This book (Volume I) is unique, and every philosopher or historian of logic will be determined to possess it. * Nature * Review from other book by this author Goedel would probably have been pleased ... The set should be of interest to professionals and students in the area of logic, mathematics, phiosophy, history of science, computer science and to some non-specialists with a background in science and/or logic. For all university level libraries and for large public and college library collections. * New Technical Books, New York Public Library (January 1987) * Read more...
