This is a ticket for accepting feedback to the LFE preface (we're still keeping the prefaces to the 1st and 2nd edition).

  • In the "Introduction " section, change "below" to "the following sections", e.g., "the mathematical and computational history leading to Lisp has been greatly simplified below" and "the four famous mathematicians listed below"
  • In the Peano section, show the example of recursion from his axioms
  • In the Russell section, show examples he gives for propositional functions with and without bound variables (from the Principia)
  • 6.4 first sentence "The ups-and-downs of Lisp since it's inception in 1958" should read its no apostrophe.
  • Update the content in the book with changes made in the blog posts

Yikes! Thanks for that -- just fixed; should be visible as soon as the
gitbook build finishes.

"David Hilbert’s Entscheidungsproblem"
Not "David Hilbert’s Entschiedungsproblem"
I think.
