Hilbert's efforts to connect mathematics and philosophy is an important part of the book. Hilbert was convinced that the combination of mathematics, philosophy and logic represented by Russel should play a greater role in science.

Constance Bowman Reid (January 3, 1918 – October 14, 2010) was the author of several biographies of mathematicians and popular books about mathematics. She received several awards for mathematical exposition. She was not a mathematician but came from a mathematical family–her sister was Julia Robinson, and her brother-in-law was Raphael M. Robinson. Reid was born in St. Louis, Missouri, the daughter of Ralph Bowers Bowman and Helen (Hall) Bowman.
