Logic, Philosophy of Mathematics, and their History

Essays in Honor of W. W. Tait

Erich H. Reck, ed

In a career that spans 60 years so far, W.W. Tait has made many highly influential contributions to logic, the philosophy of mathematics, and their history. The present collection of new essays – contributed by former students, colleagues, and friends – is a Festschrift, i.e., a celebration of his life and work. The essays address a variety of themes prominent in his work or related to it.



The collection starts with an introduction in which Tait’s contributions are sketched and put into context. The eleven essays that follow are arranged in three parts: Part I. Proof Theory and its History; Part II. Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics; and Part III. History of Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics. Each of the essays contributes substantially to one or several of these areas.



The authors included are: Steve Awodey, Solomon Feferman, Michael Friedman, Warren Goldfarb, Geoffrey Hellman, William Howard, Stephen Menn, Rebecca Morris, Charles Parsons, Erich Reck, Thomas Ricketts, and Wilfried Sieg.



The editor, Erich H. Reck is Professor of Philosophy at the University of California at Riverside.
