Radical anti-realism, Wittgenstein and the length of proofs

Synthese 171 (3):419 - 432 (2009)
Abstract
After sketching an argument for radical anti-realism that does not appeal to human limitations but polynomial-time computability in its definition of feasibility, I revisit an argument by Wittgenstein on the surveyability of proofs, and then examine the consequences of its application to the notion of canonical proof in contemporary proof-theoretical-semantics.
