The Logic of the Plausible and Some of its Applications

So basic and imperfect because it might seem this booklet has made use of data on invention and discovery accumu­ lated in the course of an entire life. these people who will be tempted to stress purely its imperfections should still learn the correspondence exchanged among Cantor and Dedekind on the finish of the 19th century; they might then notice how tough it was once, even for a great guy, the author of the set concept, to suggest impeccable ends up in a totally new box.

Example text

At Gabriel Fauré high school I had two friends, Alain and Jacques, with whom I talked about most everything and even started a music band. They were the two best students in the school. Alain was the very best. e. 20/20 in the French system. In the last year of high school he had a philosophy teacher who was a Lacanian and who had a reputation for being very harsh; nobody understood what he was talking about and it was difficult to get a mark higher than 5/20. Alain regularly got about 15/20. For him this was the most interesting and challenging subject, exactly because it was difficult to understand.

He travels around the world together with Catherine promoting their ideas, art, and a true and rare sense of scientific and artistic cooperation and dialogue, facing very different people, cultures, and systems, and thanks to this, many unexpected international, intercultural, interreligious friendships, connections and cooperation have started. And as they should be, they are very welcomed everywhere. Jean-Yves has great taste in film, and is a cinematic connoisseur and professional. If you haven’t seen it yet, please find and watch every video he has made with Catherine, movie, interview or filmed performance.

However, I must say that I have never been much attracted by Kreisel’s style, personality, or directions of work in logic – a “Tarskian dissident”, as depicted by Sol Feferman (see [14]). I have always felt close to Alfred Tarski. Yet Kreisel is definitely an interesting character. He was a good friend of Raymond Queneau, one of my favorite writers, and had many interests in life. Even if there is an apparent similarity between myself and Kreisel from the point of view of nomadic versus sedentary person, there is a strong difference in the sense that Kreisel was a rich man.
