Why Is Mathematics Incomplete?

Gödel’s incompleteness theorem is a foundational result in mathematics that proves that any axiomatic theory of numbers will be either inconsistent or incomplete.

Turing’s Halting problem is a foundational result in computing proving that computers cannot know if a program will halt. Gödel’s Mistake connects these theorems to the question of meaning. The book shows that the proofs arise due to category confusions between names, concepts, things, programs, algorithms, problems, etc. The book argues that these problems can be solved by introducing ordinary language categories in mathematics.
