What is Mathematics, Really?Mitteilungen der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, 6
[Difficulties are raised for views that explain consensus in mathematics using only sociological pressure. Mathematical proof is sociologically very peculiar, when compared to other socially constrained practices. A preliminary analysis of the factors that have been at work historically in the “benign fixation of mathematical practice” are then exhumed: dispositions, implicit applications, an implicit logic, all play a role.]
