Someone left a nodeshell here. All right, I'll bite.
This was the title of

Kurt Gödel's famous paper where he proved that any finite

formal system of sufficient power to be meaningful necessarily contains "undecidable propositions", that is,

well-formed formulas for which a

proof of truth or falsity could not be generated using the system in question. See Also:

Gödel's Incompleteness Theorem
This paper dashed the hopes of the

formalists, led by

David Hilbert, who thought all

mathematics could be brought under a program of formal systems.

Principia Mathematica was the mammoth attempt by

Bertrand Russell and

Alfred North Whitehead to do just that.
