Rod Holt Friends one & all:
Any body who says "... Gödel kicked the whole [formalist program] over,"
and then goes on to Hofsteader make me stop reading.
I have a question: Why don't people read GÖDEL in stead of reading about
him? Why don't Marxists take a little time off and learn a little
mathematics, or at least enough to know the difference between "True"
and "derivable," between logic and metalogic??
CB: We were hoping that in a sort of socialist division of mental labor, you
could tell us these, (or tell us again; sometimes it takes repetition in
learning) since you learned 'em.
Does anybody here know what a Gödel number is? If not, then avoid
propounding on Gödel, the dialectic, etc. ad nausium.
