This work explores in historical depth the relation between philosophical quandaries of self-reference and recent 20th-century metamathematical notions of consistency and incompleteness. Boos identifies traditional attempts to represent such problems, and offers new applications of quantum physics and the completeness theorem to explore "metatheoretic ascent" and the limitations of certainty.
