Here are some things that can be helpful to read.

Some entries in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy:

Books that can be of interest:
- Any of Gregory Chaitin's popular books. He used to post them
all on his web site. Now he doesn't, but this book,
*Exploring
Randomness* is available.
- Some of you may be interested in Penrose's arguments in
the early chapters of
*The Emperor's New Mind* which is
in Penfield at Q335 .P415 1989.
- Andrew Hodge's biography of Turing's is a fine book.
Penfield: QA29.T8 H63 1983.
- Raymond Smullyan has puzzle books that in a playful way
aim to illustrate problems of incompleteness and consistency
and self reference. In Penfield see:

- Wittgenstein's
*Remarks on the Foundations of
Mathematics* is in our library, at QA9.W743. Useful if you
are interested in the question of conventionalism.
