"In 1931 Kurt Godel disrupted some of the fundamental assumptions underlying mathematics and logic with the publication of his revolutionary paper, "On Formally Undecidable Propositions of Principia Mathematica and Related Systems." Ironically, few mathematicians of the time were able to understand the young scholar's complex proof, and the full importance of this work was largely overlooked for many years. Godel was at last recognized by his peers and presented with the first Albert Einstein Award in 1951 for achievement in the natural sciences - the highest honor of its kind in the United States. The award committee, which included Albert Einstein and J. Robert Oppenheimer, described his work as "one of the greatest contributions to the sciences in recent times."" "In Godel's Proof, Ernest Nagel and James Newman provide a readable and non-technical explanation for both scholars and non-specialists of the main ideas and broad implications of Godel's discovery. First published in 1958 and in print continuously in ten languages, this highly popular, seminal work offers every educated person with an interest in mathematics, logic, and philosophy the opportunity to understand a previously difficult and inaccessible subject."--Jacket

75 editions published between 1961 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book is divided into three parts. The first part deals with the attributes of the domain of science. It shows what science is and what it is not, what material is included and what is excluded, and not only where the boundaries are located, but also how definite and distinct are these boundaries. It also discusses who scientists are, what they do, and how they work. The second part contains a discussion of the concepts, which form the foundation upon which the edifice of science is built. These concepts are more or less intuitive. Everyone has a feeling for such concepts as material substance, force, and symmetry. From these concepts arise abstractions such as space, time, and energy. These abstractions are the material with which the theoretical framework of science is built. Facts, then, form the envelope which is supported by this framework and which encloses the inner parts of the edifice. In Part Three, excursions are taken into territory that is either located in that vague region on the boundaries of the domain of science or into territory completely beyond the boundary but still within range of communication of the central structure of science. These excursions are taken for pleasure and for emotional and esthetic satisfaction. Finally, an attempt has been made in the last chapter to emphasize certain similarities between gravitational effects, electrical forces, and electromagnetic radiation"--Preface.
