- KurzbeschreibungHao Wang (1921-1995) was a prolific researcher and<br>writer in mathematical logic, computer science, and<br>philosophy. He is known for the close relation he<br>developed with Kurt Gödel during the last decade of the<br>latter's life and the two books about Gödel that he<br>published after Gödel's death. This volume of essays<br>covers to some extent each of these fields of Wang's<br>activity but with greatest emphasis on philosophy. Wang spent the first twenty-five years of his life in China<br>and continued to identify himself as Chinese, and in later<br>years he returned to China several times. The volume<br>adds to the picture of the Chinese side of Wang and his<br>engagement with the intellectual life of his own country<br>during a turbulent period. Wang's writings in Chinese<br>are surveyed, and two translations are included of short<br>essays on two Chinese scholars, his teacher Jin Yuelin<br>and his friend from student days He Zhaowu, as well as<br>a short memoir of Wang by He, written shortly after<br>Wang's death. Another writing of Wang published for the first time is<br>an edition with introduction of an exposition by Wang of<br>Gödel's views on sets and concepts. Essays on Wang<br>and his work include a memoir of collaboration with him<br>on Gödel's philosophy by Eckehart Köhler, an account of<br>two classic contributions to computer science and logic<br>by Martin Davis, and essays by Abner Shimony on his<br>distinctive view of the nature and method of philosophy<br>and by Juliet Floyd on his reflections on the philosophy<br>of Wittgenstein, who fascinated Wang partly because of<br>the contrast between his views and Gödel's.
