MATHEMATICS AND EXPERIENCE (Matematika a skusenost)
Languages of publication
By definition mathematics is traditionally considered to be a discipline consisting of purely analytic propositions. The aim of the present paper is to offer arguments against this entrenched view and to draw attention to the experiential dimension of mathematical knowledge. Following Husserl's interpretation of physical knowledge as knowledge constituted by the use of instruments, the author is trying to interpret mathematical knowledge also as acknowledge based on instrumental experience. This interpretation opens a new view on the role of the logistical program, both in philosophy of mathematics and in philosophy of science.
