    Predicative arithmetic.Edward Nelson - 1986 - Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press.
    This book develops arithmetic without the induction principle, working in theories that are interpretable in Raphael Robinson's theory Q. Certain inductive formulas, the bounded ones, are interpretable in Q. A mathematically strong, but logically very weak, predicative arithmetic is constructed. Originally published in 1986. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting (...)

    Infinity: New Research Frontiers.Rudy Rucker, Wolfgang Achtner, Enrico Bombieri, Edward Nelson, W. Hugh Woodin & Harvey M. Friedman (eds.) - 2011 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    "The infinite! No other question has ever moved so profoundly the spirit of man; no other idea has so fruitfully stimulated his intellect; yet no other concept stands in greater need of clarification than that of the infinite." - David Hilbert This interdisciplinary study of infinity explores the concept through the prism of mathematics and then offers more expansive investigations in areas beyond mathematical boundaries to reflect the broader, deeper implications of infinity for human intellectual thought. More than a dozen (...)
