Originaltext und historischer und mathematischer Kommentar von Klaus Volkert

David Hilberts „Festschrift“ Grundlagen der Geometrie“ aus dem Jahre 1899 wurde zu einem der einflussreichsten Texte der Mathematikgeschichte. Wie kein anderes Werk prägte es die Mathematik des 20. Jahrhunderts und ist auch heute noch von größtem Interesse.

Aus der Perspektive eines Mathematikhistorikers schildert der Herausgeber die Entwicklung einer Axiomatik der Geometrie, die spätestens mit Euklids „Elemente“ (ca. three hundred v. u. Z.) begann und erst durch Hilbert zu einem vollständigen und handhabbaren procedure geführt wurde. Nach einer ausführlichen  Erläuterung des Hilbertschen Textes wird seine Rezeption bis 1905 umfassend dargestellt und daran anschließend viele der von ihm ausgehenden weiteren direkten und indirekten Entwicklungen skizziert.

Die Faszination des Textes ist auch dem heutigen Leser direkt zugänglich, da Hilbert´s axiomatischer Ansatz ohne mengentheoretische Argumente oder formale Logik auskommt.

Science vs. Religion: What Scientists Really Think

That the longstanding antagonism among technological know-how and faith is irreconcilable has been taken with no consideration.
