A Walk In the Snow

  • Richard J. Lipton
Chapter

Abstract

He use to walk the rolling grounds of the Institute for Advanced Studies with Albert, but Einstein died last spring. Today Kurt Gödel is walking alone through the falling snow, and he is thinking. Gödel is the greatest logician of his time, perhaps of all time, yet he is deeply troubled. He has found a problem he cannot solve—this does not happen often. The problem concerns a simple but fundamental question.
