5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent guide to Gödel, 27. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
Simply magnificent. This book meets and exceeds the description on its back cover -- offering "any educated person with a taste for logic and philosophy the chance to satisfy his intellectual curiosity about a previously inaccessible subject." This book gives anyone with the interest and the motivation a solid, if not complete, understanding of the ideas underlying the proof. While it's true that someone very unfamiliar with mathematics (or, more importantly, with logic and mathematical thinking) would not get as much out of the book, it does a very good job of walking the reader through Gödel's complex but breathtakingly elegant reasoning. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Short and to the Point, 3. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
This is an excellent summary of Godel's main ideas. If you want to understand Godel's proof in less than 100 pages, look no further.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lucid & satisfying: Godel's Proof and modern logic, 8. Juli 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
In 100 lucid and highly readable pages, presents the most important ideas of modern logic: axiomatisation (Euclid), formalization (Hilbert), metamathematical argumentation, consistency, completeness, etc., leading up to Godel's incompleteness result. Elementary from a technical point of view, but technical people should read it to get perspective. Non-technical people will appreciate its workmanlike, substantive exposition, in contrast to the mysticism, obfuscation, and cuteness of a "Godel, Escher, Bach". It is old (1958) and very incomplete (no set theory, no computability, no non-standard analysis, ...), but still essential reading.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good, but not for the true layman..., 28. Januar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
You'll want to have a decent mathematical background to get much out of this without some tutoring. The book is well done and I can't imagine covering so much ground in much less space (it's a slim paperback). It doesn't spend a lot of time addressing the implications of the incompleteness theorem and this is probably wise. The lead-in is reasonably thorough and bridges to the theorem itself via a discussion of the project of Principia Mathematica (naturally), ultimately opting for a larger set of initial axioms (than Godel used) to illustrate the proof (the reason was too technical for me to guess at although it apparently simplifies things)

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book is very clear and explains its subject thouroughly, 27. Februar 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
This book, Godel's Proof, explains a complex subject in easy to understand language. It guides you through every step of the way, teaching all the information you need to understand the proof before it attempts to explain the proof itself. I found it to be very interesting. This is the only math book I have ever read of my own free will. I recomend this book to anyone who has a slight intrest in math or logic

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic book for lovers of the philosophy of mathematics, 18. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
I have encountered this book in my studies of the philosophy of mathematics. Certainly this book explains the best way a topic which is extremely difficult to understand. The argument that Nagel pursues throughout the book in order to explain Godel's achievement is simply fantastic. I highly recommend it to people who are interested in the philosophy of mathematics as a milestone to certain approaches.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Possibly the briefest and clearest exposition available., 16. März 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
This is an excellent book. No nonsense, no cute metaphors (except one involving supermarkets. But one is excusable!) Douglas Hofstadter's "Gödel, Escher, Bach", though entertaining, tended to rely on obscure (and interminable) form-content interplay to illustrate its points. "Gödel's Proof" sticks to the facts and gets you there in a few hours.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Metamathematics: Valuable summary of a highly specialized field, 1. Januar 2013
Verifizierter Kauf(Was ist das?)
Although some details of the proof are missing, and some theorems just given without further details, the most fundamental aspects are explained in the text, and some details given in the appendix. With the "vocabulary", grammar and logic principles taught by the book it is even sometimes possible to find the deduction ("proof") by just experimenting with what you have learned. Additional literature is not necessary, but after reading this book highly recommended, as it is a good foundation to seek further understanding.

For those who like think about the connection to other discplines of science, "Goedel, Escher, Bach" is also recommended - although you may find some redundancy; which might also mirror the special nature of the given topic.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Very Good Introduction, 16. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Godel's Proof (Taschenbuch)
I Read this book in an afternoon. While this book covers many of Godels ideas, concepts, and systematically works throught the incompleteness theory, it does however lack the fine detail of the actual theorem. I recomend this book for those who wish to find out aout Godels Proof, without wanting the know the fine details.
