Introduction to mathematical thinking: the formation of concepts in modern mathematics by Friedrich Waismann( Book )

47 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 870 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This enlightening survey of mathematical concept formation holds a natural appeal to philosophically minded readers, and no formal training in mathematics is necessary to appreciate its clear exposition of mathematic fundamentals. Rather than a system of theorems with completely developed proofs or examples of applications, readers will encounter a coherent presentation of mathematical ideas that begins with the natural numbers and basic laws of arithmetic and progresses to the problems of the real-number continuum and concepts of the calculus. Contents include examinations of the various types of numbers and a criticism of the extension of numbers; arithmetic, geometry, and the rigorous construction of the theory of integers; the rational numbers, the foundation of the arithmetic of natural numbers, and the rigorous construction of elementary arithmetic. Advanced topics encompass the principle of complete induction; the limit and point of accumulation; operating with sequences and differential quotient; remarkable curves; real numbers and ultrareal numbers; and complex and hypercomplex numbers. In issues of mathematical philosophy, the author explores basic theoretical differences that have been a source of debate among the most prominent scholars and on which contemporary mathematicians remain divided. "With exceptional clarity, but with no evasion of essential ideas, the author outlines the fundamental structure of mathematics." {u2014} Carl B. Boyer, Brooklyn College. 27 figures. Index

Hauptbeschreibung Die ""Einführung in das mathematische Denken"" gilt als zeitloser Klassiker der Mathematik und ist auch heute noch eine hervorragende Einführung. Der Autor geht auf mögliche Fragen, Einwände, Schwierigkeiten und Missverständnisse des Lesers ein, erklärt sehr gut und gibt instruktive Beispiele. Die philosophische Dimension der Mathematik betont er besonders, und er führt den Leser an wissenschaftliche Ergebnisse heran. Dem Text sind Anmerkungen zugefügt, einmal, um veralteten Fachausdrücken die heute üblichen gegenüberzustellen, zum andern, um die Weiterentwicklung

Ethics and the will : essays by Friedrich Waismann( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contribution made by the Vienna Circle to ethics and the philosophy of action is increasingly being recognized. Here two previously unpublished pieces by Moritz Schlick and his pupil Josef Schächter set the scene, showing how ethics is not dependent on metaphysics but does require a sensitivity to strata of language other than that of science. Schächter (author of Prolegomena to a Critical Grammar, also in the VCC, and now doyen of educational philosophers in Israel) further develops this ethical theme in a too little known study of pessimistic dicta that he published in 1938. He succeeds (without ever assenting to it) in giving sense to the idea that it were better for a man never to have been born. The bulk of the book is devoted to two works by Friedrich Waismann, probably written not long after his emigration to England, also in 1938. There are a paper on ethics and science, which defends the Wittgensteinian view that morality is something one cannot defend, but only profess, and (itself more than half the volume) a treatise on will and motive, where the influence of Wittgenstein is mediated by that of Ryle and where many points in modern theory of action are anticipated with the author's usual sensitivity both to language and to the complexity of the human situation. (Joachim Schulte recently edited these two works in the original German, otherwise they have remained unpublished). This valuable addition to the VCC should illuminate both the history of the Circle and the kind of reflection on language and action which dominates the practical philosophy of our own day.--

The voices of Wittgenstein : the Vienna circle : Ludwig Wittgenstein and Friedrich Waismann by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Voices of Wittgenstein brings together for the first time in both the original German and English translation over one hundred short essays in philosophical logic and the philosophy of mind of historical importance to understanding Wittgenstein's philosophical thought and development in the 1930s. It is the only substantial corpus of Wittgenstein's work that has remained relatively unknown and unavailable until now. Transcribed from the papers of Friedrich Waismann and dating from 1932-1935, the majority are highly important dictations by Wittgenstein to Waismann. The volume also includes texts of redrafted material by Waismann closely based on the dictations."--Jacket
