Czermak, Johannes (ed.), Philosophy of mathematics. Proceedings of the 15th international Wittgenstein-Symposium, 16-23 August 1992, Kirchberg am Wechsel, Austria. Part I. Wien: Hölder-Pichler-Tempsky. Schriftenreihe der Wittgenstein-Gesellschaft. 20/I, 119-126 (1993).
The author relates G. F. C. Griss’ ultra-intuitionistic criticism of Brouwer’s intuitionism, especially on Brouwer’s definition of negation as “reasoning carried to an absurdity”, to Griss’ Weltanschauung as presented in his book Idealistische filosofie [Van Loghum Slaterus, Arnhem (1946)].
