Abstract

We provide an analytic read-through of Richard Dedekind's 1901 article “Über die Permutationen des Körpers aller algebraischen Zahlen," describing the principal results concerning infinite Galois theory from both Dedekind's point of view and a modern perspective, noting an apparently uncorrected error in the supplement to the article in the Collected Works. As there is no published English-language translation of the article, we provide an annotated original translation.
