NEW BOOK: "Set Theory, Arithmetic, and Foundations of Mathematics"

Dear Colleagues,

Our book:

"Set Theory, Arithmetic, and Foundations of Mathematics: Theorems, Philosophies"

is out in Europe and shortly in the US. Edited by Roman Kossak and myself, it is a series of papers
around the theme of the title.

The volume includes, among other papers:

A transcript of Gdel's conversations with Sue Toledo about phenomenology, proof theory and the 
Euthyphro dialogue, which took place in the early 1970s; a commentary on these conversations by 
Curtis Franks; Hugh woodin's paper arguing against the Generic Multiverse Position; Troelstra's 
history of constructivism through 1991; papers on arithmetic by Schmerl, Enayat, Visser, Kaye and
others; Tennenbaum's simple proof of the irrationality of the square root of 2.

The book has been long in the making. We hope the fom community finds it interesting!
