Global Ethics

Here is the class website for the Economics and Ethics of Gender in the Developing World I mentioned. And here is the table of contents for the Global Ethics Anthology I put together. Most of the readings are online and linked to this page--some would be good paper topics. (Check which!)

Gödel's Theorem

Here is the link to Gödel's Theorem: On Formally Undecidable Propositions. And here is a biography of Gödel with some bibliography and links.

A very good, popular, accessible and fun book reflection on Gödel's Theorem and related matters is Doublas Hofstadter's Gödel Escher Bach. For a more concise, focused discussion see Gödel's Proof. There are reviews for both books at these links.

Gödel Escher Bach is available at the USD library and so is Gödel's Proof.
