Gödel's proof by Ernest Nagel( Book )

150 editions published between 1958 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 2,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1931 Kurt Godel disrupted some of the fundamental assumptions underlying mathematics and logic with the publication of his revolutionary paper, "On Formally Undecidable Propositions of Principia Mathematica and Related Systems." Ironically, few mathematicians of the time were able to understand the young scholar's complex proof, and the full importance of this work was largely overlooked for many years. Godel was at last recognized by his peers and presented with the first Albert Einstein Award in 1951 for achievement in the natural sciences - the highest honor of its kind in the United States. The award committee, which included Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer, described his work as "one of the greatest contributions to the sciences in recent times."" "In Godel's Proof, Ernest Nagel and James Newman provide a readable and non-technical explanation for both scholars and non-specialists of the main ideas and broad implications of Godel's discovery. First published in 1958 and in print continuously in ten languages, this highly popular, seminal work offers every educated person with an interest in mathematics, logic, and philosophy the opportunity to understand a previously difficult and inaccessible subject."--Jacket

Observation and theory in science by Ernest Nagel( Book )

24 editions published between 1969 and 2019 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The three lectures, presented as the first series of the Alvin and Fanny Blaustein Thalheimer Lectures, concern the logical status of scientific theories in relation to observation. Nagel analyzes some of the attacks on the observational-theoretical distinction, and proposes that the proper way of construing the observational-theoretical contrast is in terms of the way statements actually function within the context of scientific inquiry. Bromberger feels that the essentially formalistic view of theories is "essentially bankrupt" and sketches a possible alternative approach to the analysis of scientific theories in terms of questions raised and of the logical dimensions of possible answers to these questions. In the final lecture Grunbaum discusses Duhem's thesis that it is impossible to test scientific theories by crucial experiments and seeks to present counterexamples to Feyerabend's claim concerning the manner in which terms are "theory laden." Barker's introduction provides an overview of the place of the three lectures in terms of trends in the philosophy of science, and Mandelbaum gives a brief biography of Dr. And Mrs. Thalheimer. (Al)

Hofstadters "Gödel, Escher, Bach" ist der Name Gödel auch bei Nichtmathematikern bekannt geworden. 1931 hatte Kurt Gödel unter dem Titel "Über formal unterscheidbare Sätze der Principia Mathematica und verwandter Systeme" seinen Unvollständigkeitssatz publiziert. Nagel und Newman haben das Wesentliche an Gödels Ergebnissen für Nichtfachleute dargestellt. Die vorliegende 6.
