This volume contains six sets of notes for lectures on the foundations of geometry held by Hilbert in the period 1891-1902. It also reprints the first edition of Hilbert’s celebrated Grundlagen der Geometrie of 1899, together with the important additions which appeared first in the French translation of 1900. The lectures document the emergence of a new approach to foundational study and contain many reflections and investigations which never found their way into print.

Imperfect designing of machine foundations based on empirical formulations has led to the problem of troublesome vibrations in the existing foundations. Recent developments in the field of structural and soil dynamics have helped establish basic design principles for various types of machine foundations. In order to achieve efficiency and economy in the design, it is imperative that the designer have an in depth knowledge of various aspects of analysis, design and construction of machine foundations

Foundations of Daoist Ritual

A Berlin Symposium

In 2007 the Chinese Department of Humboldt University (Berlin) staged a symposium on foundations of Daoist ritual. The results in English and Chinese (with summaries) are presented in this book. Daoist ritual is embedded in Chinese culture, and so considerations from the Confucian point of view made the start. The following contributions deal with components of Daoist rituals that matter on a basic level, involving exorcism, realities of minor rituals and movements in Taiwan and China up to present times. The focus is on relevant canonical traditions, on orthodox rituals and generally known literary themes of religious importance. A third group of contributions concentrates on aspects of medieval ritual, on its canonical sources and historic performance. Pious designs of care are evident in Daoist medical efforts that were also studied at this symposium.

Foundations on Rock

Engineering Practice, Second Edition

This second edition of the successful Foundations on Rock presents an up-to-date practical reference book describing current engineering practice in the investigation, design and construction of foundations on rock. An extra chapter on Tension Foundations has been included. The methods set out are readily applicable to high rise buildings, bridges, dams and structures subject to uplift and turning loads. Foundations on Rock differs from the many texts and handbooks on soil foundations in that it focuses on the effect of geology on the stability and settlement of rock foundations. While the intact rock may be strong, defects in the rock such as faults, joints and cavities, and the deterioration of the rock with time, will have a significant effect on foundation performance. Methods of detecting such defects are described, and their implications for foundation design and treatment are elaborated.

David Hilbert's Lectures on the Foundations of Arithmetic and Logic 1917-1933

The core of Volume 3 consists of lecture notes for seven sets of lectures Hilbert gave (often in collaboration with Bernays) on the foundations of mathematics between 1917 and 1926. These texts make possible for the first time a detailed reconstruction of the rapid development of Hilbert’s foundational thought during this period, and show the increasing dominance of the metamathematical perspective in his logical work: the emergence of modern mathematical logic; the explicit raising of questions of completeness, consistency and decidability for logical systems; the investigation of the relative strengths of various logical calculi; the birth and evolution of proof theory, and the parallel emergence of Hilbert’s finitist standpoint. The lecture notes are accompanied by numerous supplementary documents, both published and unpublished, including a complete version of Bernays’s Habilitationschrift of 1918, the text of the first edition of Hilbert and Ackermann’s Grundzüge der theoretischen Logik (1928), and several shorter lectures by Hilbert from the later 1920s. These documents, which provide the background to Hilbert and Bernays’s monumental Grundlagen der Mathematik (1934, 1938), are essential for understanding the development of modern mathematical logic, and for reconstructing the interactions between Hilbert, Bernays, Brouwer, and Weyl in the philosophy of mathematics.
