Godel's Incompleteness Theorems

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1992. Second printing. Hardcover. 8vo. [7], viii-xiii, [3], 1-139, [5] pp. Navy cloth over boards with a gold horizontal rule and lettering in red and gold on the front board, gold lettering within two red rectangles bordered in gilt and publisher's device in gold on the spine, ISBN in gold on the rear board. Volume 19 in the Oxford Logic Guides series. Series editors Angus MacIntyre, John Shepherdson, and Dana Scott. As with most volumes in the series, this book was issued without a dust jacket. An attractive copy of Smullyan's well-known introduction to Godel's incompleteness theorems, noteworthy for studying proofs of incompleteness for various axiomitazations of arithmetic including a proof using Tarski's truth set, which is considerably more elegant than Godel's original (much more difficult) proof. Very near Fine. Item #00009931
