Set Theory and the Continuum Problem (Dover Books on Mathematics)

A lucid, stylish, and whole survey of set concept, this quantity is drawn from the authors' vast educating adventure. the 1st of 3 elements specializes in axiomatic set concept. the second one half explores the consistency of the continuum speculation, and the ultimate part examines forcing and independence effects.

Zermelo’s Axiom of Choice: Its Origins, Development, and Influence

This e-book grew out of my curiosity in what's universal to 3 disciplines: arithmetic, philosophy, and heritage. The origins of Zermelo's Axiom of selection, in addition to the talk that it engendered, definitely lie in that intersection. because the time of Aristotle, arithmetic has been involved alternately with its assumptions and with the items, equivalent to quantity and house, approximately which these assumptions have been made.

Finitely Axiomatizable Theories

This is often the one monograph dedicated to the expressibility of finitely axiomatizable theories, a classical topic in mathematical common sense. the amount summarizes investigations within the box that experience led to a lot of the present growth, treating systematically all confident effects bearing on expressibility.

But while the evidence they marshalled supported their case, it was inadequate to resolve the issue. See WOODMAN (1963) for an assessment of the status of the debate after the appearance of the Conrad and Meyer paper, but early in the stream of research aimed a t evaluating the validity of their approach and findings. *I "SCIENTIFIC HISTORY A N D TRADITIONAL HISTORY 41 the judgement that was exercised by the scholar in interpreting the testimony. In cliometric research, where large bodies of data are the basis of proof, the role of the footnote is greatly diminished, although it is still used to inform the reader about the kinds of materials used and for other ancillary purposes.

It directs the skeptical reader to the location of the testimony and allows him to form his own judgment of the relevance of the testimony, its reliability, and See, for example, HASKELL (1975a), SCHEIBER (1975), MCCLELLAND (1978). McClelland argued that when our result clashed with established authority, Engerman and I should have realized that we weie in error. He suggested that the source of the error was the use of a measure of efficiency derived from a Cobb-Douglas production function. But as we have shown (FOGEL and ENGERMAN, 1980), our result is independent of the form of the production function.

One of these has now been going on for eleven summers at the University of Michigan and another for eight summers at the Newberry Library in Chicago. The climax of these efforts to accelerate the swing toward cliometrics was the establishment in 1975 of the Social Science History Association (SSHA), which now has about 700 members and whose annual conferences bring together several hundred scholars. SSHA also publishes its own journal (Sociat Science History) and attempts to coordinate its activities with those of like-minded scholars abroad.
