Gödel, Carnap and the Fregean Heritage


In this paper we examine Gödel's and Carnap's conception of logic and the content of mathematics. This examination will be mainly conducted through the analysis of Is mathematics syntax of language?, the paper that was prepared by Gödel in six versions for the Schilpp's volume dedicated to Carnap, and that in the end was not sent to the editors. Such an examination is essential in order to evaluate the importance of logic and language in knowledge. Carnap and Gödel are amongst the most influential logicians which have developed the fregean heritage in different and even opposing directions. To compare their doctrines about the role of logic and its status is one of the fundamental steps for an evaluation of the philosophy of the last century .
