Husserl and Mathematics



“Husserl and Mathematics explains the development of Husserl’s phenomenological method in the context of his engagement in modern mathematics and its foundations. Drawing on his correspondence and other written sources, Mirja Hartimo details Husserl’s knowledge of a wide range of perspectives on the foundations of mathematics, including those of Hilbert, Brouwer and Weyl, as well as his awareness of the new developments in the subject during the 1930s. Hartimo examines how Husserl’s philosophical views responded to these changes, and offers a pluralistic and open-ended picture of Husserl’s phenomenology of mathematics. Her study shows Husserl’s phenomenology to be a method capable of both shedding light on and internally criticizing scientific practices and concepts.”
