              The Calculus of Selfishness (Hardback)

              By Sigmund, Karl

              How does cooperation emerge among selfish individuals? This book looks at social dilemmas where cooperative motivations are subverted and self-interest becomes self-defeating. It analyzes to what extent one key facet of human nature - selfishness - can lead to cooperation.

              Time Magazine reihte ihn unter die hundert wichtigsten Personen des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Die Harvard University verlieh ihm das Ehrendoktorat f r die Entdeckung der bedeutsamsten mathematischen Wahrheit des Jahrhunderts. Er gilt allgemein als der gr te Logiker seit Aristotel...es. Sein Freund Einstein ging, nach eigener Aussage, nur deshalb ans Institut, um G del auf dem Heimweg begleiten zu d rfen. Und John von Neumann, einer der V ter des Computers, schrieb: G del ist tats chlich absolut unersetzlich. Er ist der einzige Mathematiker, von dem ich das zu behaupten wage. Dieses Buch ist eine leichtverdauliche, einfache und anschauliche Einf hrung in G dels Leben und Werk, gedacht f r jene, die sich f r die menschlichen und kulturellen Aspekte der Wissenschaft interessieren. Ausgangspunkt des Buches waren die Vorbereitungen zu einer Ausstellung ber Kurt G del aus Anlass seines hundertsten Geburtstags. Eine Ausstellung hat etwas von einem Spaziergang an sich, und gerade das wollen wir bieten: einen Spaziergang mit G del. Albert Einstein genoss solche Spazierg nge sehr. Man kann also G del genie en.

              Like Descartes and Pascal, Hans Hahn (1879-1934) was both an eminent mathematician and a highly influential philosopher. He founded the Vienna Circle and was the teacher of both Kurt Godel and Karl Popper. His seminal contributions to functional analysis and general topology had ...a huge impact on the development of modern analysis. Hahn's passionate interest in the foundations of mathematics, vividly described in Sir Karl Popper's foreword (which became his last essay), had a decisive influence upon Godel. Like Freud, Musil and Schonberg, Hahn became a pivotal figure in the feverish intellectual climate of Vienna between the two wars. Volume 1: The first volume of Hahn's Collected Works contains his path-breaking contributions to functional analysis, the theory of curves, and ordered groups. These papers are commented on by Harro Heuser, Hans Sagan, and Laszlo Fuchs. Volume 2: The second volume deals with functional analysis, real analysis and hydrodynamics. The commentaries are written by Wilhelm Frank, Davis Preiss, and Alfred Kluwick. Volume 3: In the third volume, Hahn's writings on harmonic analysis, measure and integration, complex analysis and philosophy are collected and commented on by Jean-Pierre Kahane, Heinz Bauer, Ludger Kaup, and Christian Thiel. This volume also contains excerpts of Hahn's letters and accounts by his students and colleagues.
