Between Vienna and Berlin: The Immediate Reception of Godel's Incompleteness Theorems

History and Philosophy of Logic 20 (1):33-45 (1999)
What were the earliest reactions to Gödel's incompleteness theorems? After a brief summary of previous work in this area I analyse, by means of unpublished archival material, the first reactions in Vienna and Berlin to Gödel's groundbreaking results. In particular, I look at how Carnap, Hempel, von Neumann, Kaufmann, and Chwistek, among others, dealt with the new results
