New chapter starts tomorrow: Where have all the logicians gone over the course of the past thirty years? Why haven't logicians stepped forward to help as our discourse has floundered and failed?
You're asking some very good questions! Below, you see links to last week's reports from the missing logicians file:
Tuesday, December 4: A la recherche des logiciens perdus! When 7 plus 5 equaled 12.Tomorrow, we'll start a new report. We'll call it the paradox file.
Wednesday, December 5: Russell and Wittgenstein, up in a tree! An anecdote runs through it.
Thursday, December 6: Acolytes aped Wittgenstein! Years later, the Horwich Conjecture.
Friday, December 7: He built upon the logic of Frege and Russell! But what kind of "logic" was that?
It will take us back to Professor Goldstein's book about "the greatest logician since Aristotle." We won't talk much about Godel himself. Instead, we'll review Goldstein's work.
None of this will actually matter, of course. It seems to be maybe too late for that—and we humans don't seem so inclined.
