Concluding Remarks

  • Mark van Atten
Part of the Synthese Library book series (SYLI, volume 335)

One correct, phenomenological argument on the issue whether mathematical objects can be dynamic is not Husserl’s (negative) argument, but a reconstruction of Brouwer’s (positive) one. This I have argued by an attempt to justify, phenomenologically, the existence of one particular kind of dynamic object, the choice sequence. The phenomenological analysis was then applied to yield, in an attempt at informal rigour, a justification of the weak continuity principle for numbers.
