Hilbert's Programs and Beyond

Wilfried Sieg

  • Hilbert's foundational work is seen as deeply rooted in the radical transformation of mathematics during the 19th century; his methodological attitude can be refined and extended to bridge the chasm between a Platonist and Constructivist philosophy of mathematics.
  • This novel perspective on Hilbert's foundational work is informed by detailed examination of archival sources, original mathematical contributions, and broad philosophical reflection.
