Conversations with a Mathematician : Math, Art, Science and the Limits of Reason Paperback / softback
The author, G. J. Chaitin, shows that God plays dice not only in quantum mechanics but also in the foundations of mathematics.
According to Chaitin there exist mathematical facts that are true for no reason.
This fascinating and provocative text contains a collection of his most wide-ranging and non-technical lectures and interviews.
It will be of interest to anyone concerned with the philosophy of mathematics, the similarities and differences between physics and mathematics, and mathematics as art.
