Mathematical Proof as a Form of Appeal to a Scientific Community

Russian Studies in Philosophy 50 (4):56-72 (2012)
Abstract
The author analyzes proof and argumentation as a form of appeal to a scientific community with deep ethical meaning. He presents proof primarily as an effort to persuade a scientific community rather than a search for true knowledge, as an instrument by which responsibility is taken for the correctness of the thesis being proved, which usually originates in a sudden flash of insight
