It is difficult to describe this book im praising it No serious student of logic or foundations of mathematics will want to be without it.

Review of Metaphysics There can be no doubt that the book is a valuable contribution to the logical literature and that it will certainly spread the knowledge of mathematical logic and its history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The fundamental texts of the great classical period in modern logic, some of them never before available in English translation, are here gathered together for the first time. Modern logic, heralded by Leibniz, may be said to have been initiated by Boole, De Morgan, and Jevons, but it was the publication in of Gottlob Frege’s Begriffsschrift that opened a great epoch in the history of logic by presenting, in full-fledged form, the propositional calculus and quantification theory.

Frege’s book, translated in its entirety, begins the present volume.

The emergence of two new fields, set theory and foundations of mathematics, on the borders of logic, mathematics, and philosophy, is depicted by the texts that follow. Peano and Dedekind illustrate the trend that led to Principia Mathematica. Hilbert, Russell, and Zermelo show various ways of overcoming these paradoxes and initiate, respectively, proof theory, the theory of types, and axiomatic set theory.


Skolem generalizes Loewenheim’s theorem, and heand Fraenkel amend Zermelo’s axiomatization of set theory, while von Neumann offers a somewhat different system.

From Frege to Gödel — Jean van Heijenoort | Harvard University Press

The controversy between Hubert and Brouwer during the twenties is presented in papers of theirs and in others ssourcebook Weyl, Bernays, Ackermann, and Kolmogorov. The volume concludes with papers by Herbrand and by Goedel, including the latter’s famous incompleteness paper. Of the forty-five contributions here collected all but five are presented in extenso.

Those not originally written in English have been translated with exemplary care and exactness; the translators are themselves mathematical logicians as well as skilled interpreters of sometimes obscure texts.

Each paper is introduced by a note that sets it in perspective, explains its importance, and points out difficulties in interpretation. Editorial comments and footnotes are interpolated where needed, and an extensive bibliography frkm included.

As a universal principle in mathematics, it helps the understanding of any topic to go back to the original papers.

From Frege to Gödel

Reading these, one learns what the original problems were. These are often quite different from the way the topics are presented by modern specialists. This book is no exception: I learned a lot from it. mathenatical


Most particularly, my appreciation for Gottlob Frege has risen dramatically. Fdel second part of my review title may shock some, but the excellent collection of papers that Van Heijenoort has edited and in many cases translated! Sourcwbook your interest is instead the history of logic, all the classics in the range specified by the work’s title are here, complete with their own ideosyncratic notation.

This collection will keep you busy and wet your appetite for a sequel! This book seems to me an absolute standard for those interested in present day logic and mathematics.

Even if understanding the content of the papers is somewhat out of your grasp as it is for me! Interestingly, this tome was also the first only?
