intuitionism درگسباوری dargas-bâvari
*Fr.: intuitionnisme*
A → *philosophy* of → *mathematics*
that was introduced by the
Dutch mathematician L.E.J. Brouwer (1881-1966). Intuitionism is
based on the idea that mathematics is a creation of the mind. The
truth of a mathematical statement can only be conceived via a mental
construction that proves it to be true, and the communication between
mathematicians only serves as a means to create the same mental
process in different minds (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). → *intuition*; → *-ism*. |
