"Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882-1944) was a key figure in the development of modern astrophysics, who also made important contributions to the philosophy of science and popular science writing. The Arthur Eddington Memorial Trust was set up after his death in order to hold annual lectures on the relationship between scientific thought and aspects of philosophy, religion or ethics. This 2013 collection gathers together six of these lectures, together with Eddington's 1929 Swarthmore Lecture on Science and the Unseen World"--Back cover

On formally undecidable propositions of Principia mathematica and related systems by Kurt Gödel( Book )

14 editions published between 1962 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1931, a young Austrian mathematician published an epoch-making paper containing one of the most revolutionary ideas in logic since Aristotle. Kurt Giidel maintained, and offered detailed proof, that in any arithmetic system, even in elementary parts of arithmetic, there are propositions which cannot be proved or disproved within the system. It is thus uncertain that the basic axioms of arithmetic will not give rise to contradictions. The repercussions of this discovery are still being felt and debated in 20th-century mathematics.The present volume reprints the first English translation of

Sobre proposiciones formalmente indecidibles de los Principia Mathematica y sistemas afines I by Kurt Gödel( )

6 editions published between 1980 and 1981 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El llamado "teorema de incompletud" de la matemática, descubierto por Kurt Gödel en 1931, constituye una de las más importantes conquistas científicas del pasado siglo XX. Su hallazgo ha significado una revolución de los fundamentos de la lógica y de la matemática tan importante como la introducida en física por la teoría de la relatividad de Einstein o la efectuada en biología por el descubrimiento del modelo de la doble hélice por Watson y Crick.\r\nEste teorema cuya demostración es un prodigio de rigor matemático y de imaginación filosófica, establece que nuestros métodos de deducción racional son radicalmente incapaces de dar cuenta de todas las verdades de la ciencia matemática, la cual excede, por principio, la potencia deductiva del más perfecto de los ordenadores digitales. Una de las más profundas consecuencias filosóficas del hallazgo de Gödel es la superioridad de la mente humana sobre cualquier máquina.\r\nEl presente volumen contiene la versión castellana del célebre artículo en que este autor formuló el teorema, precedida de una introducción que analiza tanto su demostración como sus implicaciones filosóficas
