Richard Zach

  • Professor


Richard Zach works in formal logic, history of analytic philosophy, and the philosophy of mathematics. In logic, his main interests are non-classical logics and proof theory. His historical interests lie mainly in the development of formal logic and historical figures associated with this development such as Hilbert, Gödel, and Carnap. In the philosophy of mathematics he is interested in Hilbert's program and the philosophical relevance of proof theory.
