Product description


Dawson's book remains a starting point for our view into the life and work of the man who gave the world incompleteness.
       -- The Review of Modern Logic, March 2007


This definitive biography of the logician and philosopher Kurt Godel, now available in paperback, is the first in-depth account to integrate details of his personal life with his work. Based on the author's intensive study of Godel's papers and surviving correspondence, Dawson (a logician and historian of science) examines the life of this driven man, whose work on the foundation of mathematics has fundamentally changed our thoughts on this subject and has stimulated much of the research conducted in the twentieth century. He further explores the relationship between Godel's personality and his scientific achievements and describes the impact that Godel's results have had on our modern world view.
