Reverse Mathematics:

Proofs from the Inside Out

John Stillwell

"Reverse mathematics is the mathematical logician's version of zoology or botany, a classification of mathematical theorems in terms of the strength of the axioms needed to prove them. Stillwell carefully situates the field in the broader context of the history of mathematics and its foundations, and does a fine job of making the whole endeavor accessible to a general mathematical audience."--Jeremy Avigad, Carnegie Mellon University
