Choice principles and constructive logics

Philosophia Mathematica 12 (3):222-243 (2004)
to constructive systems is significant for contemporary metaphysics. However, many are surprised by these results, having learned that the Axiom of Choice (AC) is constructively valid. Indeed, even among specialists there were, until recently, reasons for puzzlement-rival versions of Intuitionistic Type Theory, one where (AC) is valid, another where it implies classical logic. This paper accessibly explains the situation, puts the issues in a broader setting by considering other choice principles, and draws philosophical morals for the understanding of quantification, choice principles, and the prospects for constructivism.
