GÖDEL, Kurt, VON NEUMANN, John (& others)
Thirteen papers by Gödel on the logical foundations of mathematics, together with von Neumann's historic paper on general economic equilibrium, all first editions, in Ergebnisse eines mathematischen Kolloquiums, unter Mitwirkung von Kurt Gödel und Georg Nöbeling. Herausgegeben von Karl Menger. Heft 1-8
B.G. Teubner & F. Deuticke, Leipzig & Berlin, 1937. First editions, and a fine complete set in the original printed wrappers, of all eight issues of these proceedings to which Gödel contributed thirteen important papers and remarks on the foundations of logic and mathematics. The last three issues are particularly rare, and are important for containing several seminal papers on mathematical economics, notably von Neumann's "A model of general economic equilibrium" in Heft 8, which "E. Roy Weintraub, current President of the History of Economics Society, described as 'the greatest paper in mathematical economics that was ever written'" (Cabral, p. 126). "In stark contrast to the short eight years of its existence, the colloquium that met in Vienna from 1928 to 1936 had a long lasting influence on economic theory" (Debreu - winner of the 1983 Nobel Prize in Economics). The most important of the Gödel papers are perhaps 'Über Vollständigkeit und Widerspruchsfreiheit' ('On completeness and consistency') in Heft 3 and 'Zur intuitionistischen Arithmetik und Zahlentheorie' ('On intuitionist arithmetic and number theory') in Heft 4. Based on the lecture at the Colloquium required for his Habilitation, in the first paper Gödel presented a different approach to his epochal incompleteness theorem, published just a few months earlier in Monatshefte für Mathematik: instead of Russell's theory of types, in the present version he used Peano's axioms for the natural numbers; this soon became the standard approach. In the second paper, Gödel proved that intuitionist mathematics is no more c … [Click Below for Full Description]
