Can There be a Proof that an Unprovable Sentence of Arithmetic is True?

Dialectica 43 (43):289-292 (1989)
Abstract
Various authors of logic texts are cited who either suggest or explicitly state that the Gödel incompleteness result shows that some unprovable sentence of arithmetic is true. Against this, the paper argues that the matter is one of philosophical controversy, that it is not a mathematical or logical issue.
