After Gödel

Kurt Gödel says that in philosophy he would like to combine and go beyond certain ideas of his heroes Plato, Leibniz, and Husserl. Gödel is also influenced significantly in some ways by Kant. On the basis of Gödel's philosophical writings, items from his Nachlass, and his remarks to Hao Wang, this chapter indicates the kind of combination of ideas from these four philosophers that Gödel wanted to develop, especially in connection with the most recent figure on the list, Husserl. Some of the most relevant texts of Husserl are cited and discussed. The main point of the chapter is to provide a basis in the texts for the position on platonism and rationalism that is developed and defended later in the book.

Keywords:   Gödel, Leibniz, monadology, Husserl, Kant, phenomenology, logic, epochē, intuition, Plato
