This multifaceted collection of essays, reminiscences and professional papers combine to create a tribute to Georg Kreisel, the influential logician and mathematical philosopher. The book aims to communicate to a wider circle his personal and intellectual influence. The contributors include Verena Huber-Dyson, Sol Feferman and Francis Crick.
It is false that this book is ONLY for "mathematician fans and armchair philosophers" as the Amazon review insinuates.

A good antidote against dessicated academics![...]
