Gödel's theorem and information

View publication

Abstract

Gödel's theorem may be demonstrated using arguments having an informationtheoretic flavor. In such an approach it is possible to argue that if a theorem contains more information than a given set of axioms, then it is impossible for the theorem to be derived from the axioms. In contrast with the traditional proof based on the paradox of the liar, this new viewpoint suggests that the incompleteness phenomenon discovered by Gödel is natural and widespread rather than pathological and unusual. © 1982 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
