Abstract

Kurt Gödel, together with Bertrand Russell is the most important name in logic, foundations and philosophy of mathematics of this century. However, although Russell devoted many pages to articulating his ideas in these and many other fields, Gödel published very little apart from his well-known writings in logic, metamathe-matics and set theory. His introverted personality inclined him away from philosophical controversy, while his continuous search for definitively conclusive arguments in philosophy made it difficult for him to publish his less conclusive writings. Thus, the sum of his published philosophical remarks runs to what is found in the papers on Russell and Cantor and a few scattered remarks elsewhere.
