About the Book

There's something poignant, almost religious, when one thinks of man's search for himself and his place in the universe. Ultimately, what is life all about? It is about us and our universe.

Man's yearning for this bonding between himself and his universe is well-known, and manifests itself in metaphysical enquiry. In the pages that follow, a priori reasonings provide solutions to some of the most challenging metaphysical, metamathematical and paradoxical problems. In particular, the paper on the Continuum Hypothesis, one of the most famous unsolved problems in mathematics, was considered 'highly original, highly readable' (Indian Journal of Mathematics). Even today it comprises the one and only rigorous intuitionistic proof of the hypothesis.

The results derived in this book have never appeared in any previous works.

About the Author

Born in Pune, India, Faraz studied Civil Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay, with a view to joining the family run manufacturing/exporting business. His interests even then turned toward foundational issues in mathematics and he came up with several alternative proofs of some well-known mathematical theorems. Then, in the family run company, he was more interested in problem solving, troubleshooting, etc. rather than anything else and he drifted more and more towards the topics covered in this book, which combine both analysis and synthesis in providing viable intuitionistic solutions to some of the most challenging metaphysical and metamathematical riddles.
