Rebecca Goldstein talking about Godel, Einstein, Wittgenstein, the
Wienerkreiss, positivism, realism, metaphysics and metamathematics in an
Edge interview. She's a philosopher by training and a novelist by
profession. Note that her knowledge of the mathematical issues is pretty
solid. Not surprising in view of the fact that her husband is my Rutgers
colleague Sheldon Goldstein, the expert on Bohmian mechanics.
