A fight worth picking,
This review is from: A World Without Time: The Forgotten Legacy of Godel and Einstein (Paperback)
As an introduction to the works of Godel post "Incompleteness" and the philosophical implications of Relativity (and no, I didn't know those subjects were connected until I read it), this little book is invaluable. Clearly, however, inside the Academy these are hotly contested issues, as the reviews below indicate, and the author gets his retaliation in first with some (almost) ad hominem attacks on his critics. All power to him, I say. It's an old joke to say academic disputes are so vicious because so little is at stake but this one seems really to matter. If this book can help elevate the reputation of one of the greatest minds of the past century to the status it deserves, it will have done no small thing.
