The volume is completed by two deep substantial essays by Jan von Plato and Craig Smorynski on Gentzen's proof theory; its relation to the ideas of Hilbert, Brouwer, Weyl, and Godel; and its development up to the present day. Smorynski explains the Hilbert program in more than the usual slogan form and shows why consistency is important. that Brouwer had on Hilbert’s program. As Hesseling documents, Brouwer’s opposition was not to formalism, which hardly existed at the time he founded intuitionism, but to classical mathematics regarded as contentual. (This is a useful word that I learned from the book. It is the English equivalent of the German inhaltlich, and the OED.

Foundations of Set Theory discusses the reconstruction undergone by set theory in the hands of Brouwer, Russell, and Zermelo. Only in the axiomatic foundations, however, have there been such extensive, almost revolutionary, developments. This book tries to avoid a detailed discussion of those topics which would have required heavy technical machinery, while describing the major results. The exercise book also shows that at that period Brouwer was not yet able to prove the topological invariance of dimension, although he noted that by means of the theorem on the singulari ties of spherical vector fields he was able to distinguish odd and even dimensions topologically, which fact he also mentions to Hilbert on 18 March Cited by: 5.

The newspaper Berliner Tageblatt proposes a public debate between Brouwer and Hilbert, to be held in its pages, but for some reason this is not realised. Neither does Brouwer complete the book he is invited to write by the German publisher Walter de Gruyter.

David Hilbert’s most popular book is Geometry and the Imagination. Most contemporary work in the foundations of mathematics takes its start from the groundbreaking contributions of, among others, Hilbert, Brouwer, Bernays, and Weyl.

Offering a collection of fifteen essays that deal with issues at the intersection of phenomenology, logic, and the philosophy of mathematics, this book is divided into three parts. Part I contains a general essay on Husserl's conception of science and logic, an essay of mathematics and transcendental phenomenology, and an essay on Cited by: between Brouwer and Hilbert over foundations of mathematics: Brouwer’s intuitionist program versus Hilbert’s formalism and metamathematical program.

Some papers of the era, especially those by Hilbert, are highly polemical. A strange outcome of the dispute was the elimination of Brouwer from the editorial board of Mathematische Annalen, a. It saw the development of three major foundational programmes: the logicism of Frege, Russell and Whitehead, the intuitionism of Brouwer, and Hilbert's formalist and proof-theoretic programme.
