Download PDF by Mark van Atten: Essays on Gödel’s Reception of Leibniz, Husserl, and Brouwer

By Mark van Atten

This quantity tackles Gödel's two-stage undertaking of first utilizing Husserl's transcendental phenomenology to reconstruct and boost Leibniz' monadology, after which founding classical arithmetic at the metaphysics hence received. the writer analyses the ancient and systematic features of that venture, after which evaluates it, with an emphasis at the moment stage.

The e-book is organised round Gödel's use of Leibniz, Husserl and Brouwer. faraway from contemplating previous philosophers inappropriate to genuine systematic matters, Gödel embraced using ancient authors to border his personal philosophical standpoint. The philosophies of Leibniz and Husserl outline his undertaking, whereas Brouwer's intuitionism is its vital foil: the shut affinities among phenomenology and intuitionism set the bar for Gödel's try and cross a ways past intuitionism.

The 4 crucial essays are `Monads and sets', `On the philosophical improvement of Kurt Gödel', `Gödel and intuitionism', and `Construction and structure in mathematics'. the 1st analyses and criticises Gödel's try to justify, by means of an issue from analogy with the monadology, the mirrored image precept in set concept. It additionally presents additional aid for Gödel's concept that the monadology has to be reconstructed phenomenologically, via displaying that the unsupplemented monadology isn't in a position to came upon arithmetic without delay. the second one reviews Gödel's studying of Husserl, its relation to Leibniz' monadology, and its impression on his publishe

d writings. The 3rd discusses how on a number of events Brouwer's intuitionism truly encouraged Gödel's paintings, specifically the Dialectica Interpretation. The fourth addresses the query no matter if classical arithmetic admits of the phenomenological origin that Gödel envisaged, and concludes that it does not.

The final essays offer extra context.  The essays accumulated the following have been written and released over the past decade. Notes were further to list additional innovations, alterations of brain, connections among the essays, and updates of references.
