Abstract

After its first beginnings in the antiquity, the prevailing contribution to mathematics development was given by Arabic and Indian mathematicians, Europe joined this development in the sixteenth century. In the nineteenth century, inconsistencies and congestions appeared in mathematics that evoked searches for limitations and impossibilities. “Metamathematics” directed toward rules and methods of creation and verification of mathematical entities arose, which gave a new impulse to philosophical depiction of mathematics told by different philosophical attitudes. The intriguing universality of mathematics, its fittingness for different concepts and phenomena, can be explained by the nature of information in our Universe. Mathematical creativity is of the same range as that of the Creator, and mathematics is just a means of comprehending the Creator’s work and complementing it.
