RIGORISATION OF THE INFINITESIMAL CALCULUS AND THE LINGUISTIC TURN
Languages of publication
Mathematics in the 19th century underwent explosive development. The discussion among philosophers was motivated by the new results which conflicted with Kant's very influential conception. One of the most important areas which lead to the meeting of philosophy and mathematics was a rigorous account of the infinitesimal calculus. In his article the author shows that considerations of this type found in Bolzano and Frege are important not only for the overcoming of the Kantian conception, but as for what we today call the linguistic turn.
