The Search for Certainty synopsis

The nineteenth century saw a movement to make mathematics higher strict. This seems to have been on the brink of success when he was confused by the discovery of class paradoxes.

This began a period of intense research into the foundations of mathematics, along with the birth of mathematical logic and a new and more acute debate in the philosophy of mathematics. The search for certainty examines this founding endeavor from the discovery of paradoxes to the present. Focusing on Ruckles' logical program and the final Hilbert program, Giacinto is looking for success and success.

These questions were placed in the context of a clear and non-technical exhibition and evaluation of the most important discoveries in mathematical logic, above all the theories of Godel fixed. After more than six decades of these discoveries, Giacuento asks about our current view on the question of certainty in mathematics.
