Favourite philosophers L. E. J. Brouwer, Gottlob Frege
Favourite quotations “Every good mathematician is at least half a philosopher, and every good philosopher is at least half a mathematician.”
― Gottlob Frege

“I believe that ideas such as absolute certitude, absolute exactness, final truth, etc. are figments of the imagination which should not be admissible in any field of science. On the other hand, any assertion of probability is either right or wrong from the standpoint of the theory on which it is based. This loosening of thinking (Lockerung des Denkens) seems to me to be the greatest blessing which modern science has given to us. For the belief in a single truth and in being the possessor thereof is the root cause of all evil in the world” ― Max Born
