About this book
This authoritative biography of Kurt Goedel relates the life of this most important logician of our time to the development of the field. Goedel's seminal achievements that changed the perception and foundations of mathematics are explained in the context of his life from the turn of the century Austria to the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.
The subject matter was phenomenal, but unfortunately Dawson, though a good researcher (and presumably a good mathematician), is just not a very good writer.
