Lecture Notes in Logic 15
Reflections on the Foundations of Mathematics: Essays in Honor of Solomon Feferman

Wilfried Sieg , Richard Sommer and Carolyn Talcott, Editors


Solomon Feferman has shaped the field of foundational research for nearly half a century. These papers, most of which were presented at the symposium honoring him at his 70th birthday, reflect his broad interests as well as his approach to foundational research, which places the solution of mathematical and philosophical problems at the top of his agenda. The contributions range from historical to technical to philosophical topics, with emphasis on proof theory and computational aspects.
