Husserl's Pluralistic Phenomenology of Mathematics

Philosophia Mathematica 20 (1):86-110 (2012)
The paper discusses Husserl's phenomenology of mathematics in his Formal and Transcendental Logic (1929). In it Husserl seeks to provide descriptive foundations for mathematics. As sciences and mathematics are normative activities Husserl's attempt is also to describe the norms at work in these disciplines. The description shows that mathematics can be given in several different ways. The phenomenologist's task is to examine whether a given part of mathematics is genuine according to the norms that pertain to the approach in question. The paper will then examine the intuitionistic, formalistic, and structural features of Husserl's philosophy of mathematics
