Hilbert’s Programs and Beyond by Wilfried Sieg

By Wilfried Sieg

Hilbert's courses & Beyond offers the foundational paintings of David Hilbert in a series of thematically equipped essays. They first hint the roots of Hilbert's paintings to the unconventional transformation of arithmetic within the nineteenth century and convey out his pivotal position in growing mathematical good judgment and facts conception. They then examine recommendations and result of "classical" evidence concept in addition to their dramatic growth in sleek evidence conception. This highbrow adventure eventually opens horizons for mirrored image at the nature of arithmetic within the twenty first century: Sieg articulates his place of reductive structuralism and explores mathematical capacities through computational models.

Example text

Our paper should make it very clear that their understanding of Dedekind’s (methodology for the) treatment of real and natural numbers is inadequate. This also holds for McCarty. When contrasting (1872c) and (1888) in his paper (1995), McCarty points out that the essay from 1888 contains a categoricity result, whereas that from 1872 does not. McCarty asks on p. 81, why Dedekind does not establish that the geometric straight line and the system of rational cuts are isomorphic. ” Our contrary answer is indicated in the Concluding Remarks, Section 7.

P. 107) These considerations underlie the requirement that frames must have domains of objects that are constituted through generative arithmetic processes. Contrasting this special form of contentual axiomatics with its general existential form, Bernays calls it sharpened axiomatics (verschärfte Axiomatik). The philosophical significance of consistency proofs is thus to be seen and assessed in terms of the objective underpinnings of the frames within which reductions are achieved. A crucial question is, consequently, what kind of procedures can be viewed as generative arithmetic ones.

To reemphasize, Turing’s work successfully analyzed the notion of human calculability and, for that reason, is so pertinent and important for the task ahead. 8 Outlook: Formality & mind When Gödel, in his (1964), sees Turing’s analysis as grounding the general formulation of the incompleteness theorems, he also remarks that these results “do not establish any bounds for the powers of human reason, but rather for the potentialities of pure formalism in mathematics”. ) where he agrees with Hilbert’s claim (oft repeated since 1900) that all precisely formulated mathematical problems are in principle solvable.
