Abstract
Greg Chaitin is one good mathematician who also seems to be a good human being. I will be saying more about that as this review moves along. His love of math, and of humanity, comes through crystal clear — even more clear than in his previous book of interviews, Conversations with a Mathematician (which I reviewed for the Monthly) — whether he is writing about "his" math, the math of others, or not (ostensibly) about math at all. When he tells us, at the end, that this is really "a book on philosophy, not just a math book", and when, throughout the book, he talks about the philosophy of math, he means "philosophy" in the sense of "philo" — meaning love — love of math, love of humanity, and love of life and existence.
