As Gödel scholars are now becoming increasingly familiar not only with
the texts in the Collected Works but also with the
still unpublished ones in the Archive, we see changes in our
understanding of Gödel's work: his results in logic, the
development of which has now begun to be  traced in much more detail,
but also his philosophical reflections, the full
importance of which is becoming ever clearer. The aim of this workshop
will be to discuss Gödel's writings and to present
and compare different perspectives on the philosophy and career of this
logician. We will study his writings in order
better to understand his intellectual development, his own reflections
on his logical theorems, and, finally, the
concomittant metaphysics that he hoped to develop.
