Philosophy of mathematics in the twentieth century : selected essays by
Charles Parsons(
)
16 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,616 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

From Kant to Husserl : selected essays by
Charles Parsons(
)
16 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,359 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

24 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 651 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

Mathematical thought and its objects by
Charles Parsons(
Book
)
20 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Mathematical Thought and Its Objects, Charles Parsons examines the notion of object, with the aim of navigating between nominalism, which denies that distinctively mathematical objects exist, and forms of Platonism that postulate a transcendent realm of such objects. He introduces the central mathematical notion of structure and defends a version of the structuralist view of mathematical objects, according to which their existence is relative to a structure and they have no more of a "nature" than that confers on them." "Parsons also analyzes the concept of intuition and presents a conception of it distantly inspired by that of Kant, which describes a basic kind of access to abstract objects and an element of a first conception of the infinite. An intuitive model witnesses the possibility of the structure of natural numbers. However, the full concept of number and knowledge of numbers involve more that is conceptual and rational. Parsons considers how one can talk about numbers, even though they are not objects of intuition. He explores the conceptual role of the principle of mathematical induction and the sense in which it determines the natural numbers uniquely." "Parsons ends with a discussion of reason and its role in mathematical knowledge, attempting to do justice to the complementary roles in mathematical knowledge of rational insight, intuition, and the integration of our theory as a whole."BOOK JACKET

Kurt Gödel : essays for his centennial by
Solomon Feferman(
Book
)
16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 294 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

13 editions published between 1961 and 2018 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"First published in 1990, this book consists of a detailed exposition of results of the theory of "interpretation" developed by G. Kreiselthe relative impenetrability of which gives the elucidation contained here great value for anyone seeking to understand his work. It contains more complex versions of the information obtained by Kreisel for number theory and clustering around the nocounterexample interpretation, for numbertheorectic forumulae provide in ramified analysis. It also proves the omegaconsistency of ramified analysis. The author also presents proofs of Schütte's cutelimination theorems which are based on his consistency proofs and essentially contain themthese went further than any published work up to that point, helping to squeeze the maximum amount of information from these proofs."Provided by publisher

Kurt Gödel (19061978) was the most outstanding logician of the twentieth century, noted for Godel's theorem, a hallmark of modern mathematics. The Collected Works will include both published and unpublished writings, in three or more volumes. The first two volumes will consist essentiallyof Godel's published works (both in the original and translation), and the third volume will feature unpublished articles, lectures, and selections from his lecture courses, correspondence, and scientific notebooks. All volumes will contain extensive introductory notes to the work as a whole and toindividual articles and other material, commenting upon their contents and placing them within a historical framework. This longawaited project is of great significance to logicians, mathematicians, philosophers and historians
