Was Gödel a Gödelian Platonist? (English) Zbl 1007.01017
The author reviews various senses in which Gödel deployed words such as ‘intuition’ and ‘analytic’, as part of Gödels claim that the mind is not mechanistic. The author rightly rejects the interpretation of Gödels stance as ‘metaphorical Platonism’, where the analogy over existence between mathematical and physical objects is strongly pressed (p. 344).
