Tojajas Below are all my interpretations of the text which may not be true due to personal limitations. But, irrespective of the validity of the Frege-Russell thesis, two features of Principia have proved of inestimable value for the further study of the consistency question.
Consider a language e. Each meta-mathematical statement is represented by a unique formula within arithmetic; and the relations of logical dependence between meta-mathematical state- ments are fully reflected in the numerical relations of dependence between their corresponding arithmetical formulas. But it can also be shown that this conditional statement taken as a whole is represented by a demonstrable formula within formalized arithmetic.
And so in the case of mathematics and meta-mathematics. A gently accessible and highly readable exegesis of what I feel is the most difficult text a student of philosophy can attempt to read. But, if the axioms were inconsistent, every formula would be a theorem. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Finally, he showed that the formula A is not demonstrable. However, the increased abstractness of newkan raised a more serious problem. Feb 20, Szplug rated it really liked it.
Finite models suffice, in principle, to establish bodel consistency of cer- tain sets of postulates; but these are of slight mathe- matical importance. Clearly, it is not a tautology. We shall de- scribe the state prlof affairs in the second example by say- ing that the number 15 has the property of being Richardian; and, in the first example, by saying that the number 17 does not have the property of being Richardian.
Our text adheres to this convention. When this is done, we obtain the formula: A set prokf primitive formulas or axioms are the underpinning, and the theorems of the calculus are formulas derivable from the axioms with the help 15 He used an adaptation of the system developed in Prin- cipia Mathematica.
Post as a guest Name. It was little touches like the chess analogy for describing the relationship between mathematics and metamathematics, the placing of the Richard paradox in terms that were more pellucid than the valiant effort attempted by Rebecca Goldsteinand the tricky, but effective, explanation of how G My thanks to AC for convincing me to take the plunge and purchase this little gem: Such a formula could not occur if the axioms were contradictory.
For suppose it were. We give a concrete example of how the numbers can be assigned to help the reader follow the discussion. A true statement whose unprovability resulted precisely from its truth!
ThomasFarkas No, the metamathematical interpretation of G says simply that G itself is not a theorem. Hence any formula that is not a tautology is not a theorem. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Most Related.
