Master proof theorist reminisces about Goedel and others.
23 juin 2016 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Takeuti and I are long time friends. He is 1 month older than I and he insists I respect him as he is my senior. That's why I bought his book apart from the fact I am also a logician and knew Goedel (only over the phone). This is an interesting and informative book by a leading proof theorist. He has enormous respect for Goedel and has had many deep conversations with Goedel reported on in this book. I often wonder how much better Takeuti would have understood Goedel if Goedel spoke Japanese. At least Takeuti speaks German so perhaps this helped comprehension. I mention this because when Akiko Kino, who was my employee, needed to speak to Takeuti about joint work, first they spoke in Japanese which soon became too ambiguous, then they switched to German and finally concluded in English.

It's uncommon to find a memoir from a mathematician -- even surprising to find a memoir from a mathematician about mathematics. It's plausible this is due to the view that to learn mathematics you're better off learning from a textbook, where there's some attempt at coherence, the standards of rigor are met, etc. etc. But an insider will recollect an additional source of mathematical knowledge that one will rarely find in any published work, namely folklore. This is what is so brilliant about Takeuti's book. There is much of instructional value and interest to come from this text -- yet it's hardly more than a very loose conversation about a variety of topics associated with logic. Hearing an expert discuss mathematics loosely is probably closer to how they're actually thinking about mathematics. I've found much to enjoy in this book and I hope others decide to put their thoughts in more personal language as this eminent logician has done.
