David Hilbert

Keep computations to the lowest level of the multiplication table.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Mathematics is a presuppositionless science. To found it I do not need God, as does Kronecker, or the assumption of a special faculty of our understanding attuned to the principle of mathematical induction, as does Poincaré, or the primal intuition of Brouwer, or, finally, as do Russell and Whitehead, axioms of infinity, reducibility, or completeness, which in fact are actual, contentual assumptions that cannot be compensated for by consistency proofs.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Mathematics is a game played according to certain simple rules with meaningless marks on paper.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The arithmetical symbols are written diagrams and the geometrical figures are graphic formulas.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
He who seeks for methods without having a definite problem in mind seeks in the most part in vain.More David Hilbert quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
