Book Description

Kurt Gödel’s famous First Incompleteness Theorem shows that, for any sufficiently rich theory that contains enough arithmetic, there are some arithmetical truths the theory can express. but cannot prove. How is this remarkable result established? This short book explains. It also discusses Gödel’s Second Incompleteness Theorem.

The aim is to make the Gödel's Theorems available, clearly and accessibly, even to those with a quite limited formal background (and at much less than half of the length of the same author‘s more wide-ranging An Introduction to Gödel‘s Theorems)
