The Adventure of Reason is divided into five main sections: history of logic (from Russell to Tarski)- foundational issues (Hilberts program, constructivity, Wittgenstein, Godel)- mathematics and phenomenology (Weyl, Becker, Mahnke)- nominalism (Quine, Tarski)- semantics (Tarski, Carnap, Neurath).

Mancosu exploits extensive untapped archival sources to make available a wealth of new material that deepens in significant ways our understanding of these fascinating areas of modern intellectual history. At the same time, the book is a contribution to recent philosophical debates, in particular on the prospects for a successful nominalist reconstruction of mathematics, the nature of finitist intuition, the viability of alternative definitions of logical consequence, and the extent to which phenomenology can hope to account for the exact sciences.
