    • Did not understand the bits about Brouwer and the significance of an intuition of continuum, but Tasić has covered so much here, with much wit and clarity.


    • Convincingly argued perspective on the connection between the great debates on the foundations of mathematics and postmodernism. The connection is of course through that generation of philosophers that was still interested in mathematics and still considered it one of the most important pillars of human thought.
