Example text

219). Godel's life and work 9 Two problems that had preoccupied workers in the field of set theory since its creation by Cantor beginning in the 1870s concerned the wellordering principle and the cardinality of the continuum. Zermelo had examined the first of these, both informally (1904) and then within the framework of his newly introduced system of axioms for set theory (1908, 1908a), and had shown that the well-ordering principle is equivalent to the axiom of choice (AC). There was much intense dispute among mathematicians about the evidence for or against this new "axiom".

The proof of the second incompleteness theorem was only sketched in 1931; Godel planned to give full details in a sequel to the paper but never did so (leaving to Hilbert and Bernays 1939 the first detailed exposition). The remarks 193la, made at a meeting in Konigsberg in 1930, provided the first public, though informal, announcement of the first incompleteness theorem. The full significance of Godel's results was apparently not appreciated on the occasion itself. In the note 1932b, the incompleteness theorems were formulated more generally for extensions of a form of Peano's arithmetic in the first-order predicate calculus.

In recent years there has been much work on the logics that are verified by such interpretations of B. (f) Pro-positional calculus (19S2c, 1933, 193Sa). The first of these notes on the classical propositional calculus is the most significant of the three, but even it has largely been overlooked. This established a generalization of (what has later come to be called) Lindenbaum's extension theorem to arbitrary (possibly uncountable) sets T of sentences in the propositional calculus; that is, if any such T is consistent then it has a complete, consistent extension.
