On the Unity of Twentieth-Century Ideas


  • John Ryskamp


This paper examines 'natural' mathematics--developed to counter perceived paradoxes in early twentieth-century set theory--as an internally consistent unifying factor in the arguments of several disciplines, including economics (Sraffa), physics (Einstein), biology (Kimura), and mathematics (Godel).
