By Burt C. Hopkins

Burt C. Hopkins offers the 1st in-depth examine of the paintings of Edmund Husserl and Jacob Klein at the philosophical foundations of the good judgment of contemporary symbolic arithmetic. money owed of the philosophical origins of formalized concepts―especially mathematical innovations and the method of mathematical abstraction that generates them―have been paramount to the improvement of phenomenology. either Husserl and Klein independently concluded that it's very unlikely to split the ancient foundation of the idea that generates the fundamental options of arithmetic from their philosophical meanings. Hopkins explores how Husserl and Klein arrived at their end and its philosophical implications for the fashionable venture of formalizing all knowledge.
