Platonism in Mathematics and the Platonism in Physical Science
Languages of publication
Mathematical platonism has become an internal problem in mathematics which results in some strictly mathematical methods of the mathematical enquiry. These methods often tend to display not quite self-conscious treatment of the mathematical reality as given and already present. The mathematical platonism is not an innocent attitude and not merely a psychological add-on to the process of science creation but should become formulated explicity, especially in physical science. The presence of platonism in physics is briefly described and some consequences of the platonism are shown.
