The author of the book is a world class set theorist who probably than anyone else has promoted a multiverse realism in set theory This argument somewhat crudely advances the point that the independence results obtained from the method of forcing suggest a multiplicity of set theory universes similar to that of non Euclidian geometries In addition he has also advanced the idea that the phenomenon of independence can even be found at the level of arithmetic I think he is wrong and my particular philosophical inch is better satisfied by the work of Hugh Woodin However the point remains that Joel David Hamkins is an exceptional philosophically astute mathematician whose work I have enjoyed immensely So I was disappointed when I discovered severe errors early in the book I even e mailed the author and have received no replyDear SirOn page 3 you define the natural numbers as 0 1 2 3 In doing so by distinguishing natural number from 1 2 3 a definition which is common in many mathematical texts especially undergraduate textbooks in elementary number theory In addition you also explain that subtraction between two natural numbers does not always result in another natural number and use this as a justification for the integers Of course we could define subtraction in the natural numbers as cut off subtraction which would allow subtraction between any two natural numbers however you make no mention of this mathematical operation in the text On page 10 you give Theorem 6 For any natural number n the number n2 n is even Clearly this is true and defined in the natural numbers as n2 is always eual or greater than nThe problem is in proof 2 by High school algebra in which you prove this theorem by rewriting n2 n as nn 1 n 1 is not always a natural number take n0 as your previous comments on page 3 point out uite naturally some may consider this a minor uibble however as the text has made the definitions of natural number and subtraction although informal at least conceptually clear The proof as it stands fails in the natural numbersThis does not seem to be a misprint and this is my point as he makes a similar mistake on page 12 In short very disappointed and so cannot recommend the book I will not continue with the book and will be returning my copy

    This is achieved through a combination of: being walked through various elegant proofs selected by Prof. Hamkins, being asked to critique mistaken proofs which contain some subtle errors, but most importantly b
