Read full description of the books:
This volume, a shortened edition of Mr. van Heijenoort's internationally acclaimed From Frege to Gödel: A Source Book in Mathematical Logic, 1879-1931 (HUP 1967), makes available in English the two most important works in the growth of modern mathematical logic. Heralded by Leibniz, modern logic had its beginnings in the work of Boole, DeMorgan, and Jevons, but the 1879 publication of Gottlob Frege's Begriffsschrift opened a great epoch in the history of logic with the full-form presentation of the propositional calculus and quantification theory.
Frege and Gödel: Two Fundamental Texts in Mathematical Logic begins with this short book, which ushered in the classical age of mathematical logic by outlining the construction of a system of logical symbolism. The volume concludes with Gödel's famous incompleteness paper of 1931, which changed the development of logic and the foundations of mathematics by revealing the intrinsic limitations of formal systems, and brought to an end the classical phase.
Mr. van Heijenoort has provided a new introduction which sets the Frege and Gödel pieces in perspective in the development of modern logic and points out difficulties in interpretation. Editorial comments, footnotes, and bibliographic information offer additional explanatory material.
Read information about the authorFriedrich Ludwig Gottlob Frege (German: [ˈɡɔtloːp ˈfreːɡə]) was a German mathematician, logician and philosopher. He is considered to be one of the founders of modern logic and made major contributions to the foundations of mathematics. He is generally considered to be the father of analytic philosophy, for his writings on the philosophy of language and mathematics. While he was mainly ignored by the intellectual world when he published his writings, Giuseppe Peano (1858–1932) and Bertrand Russell (1872–1970) introduced his work to later generations of logicians and philosophers.
