 Publisher's Summary
 Burt C. Hopkins presents the first indepth study of Edmund Husserl and Jacob Klein on the philosophical foundations of the logic of modern symbolic mathematics. Accounts of the philosophical origins of formalized concepts, especially mathematical concepts and the process of mathematical abstraction that generates them, have been key to the development of phenomenology. Both Husserl and Klein independently came to the conclusion that it is impossible to separate the historical origin of the thought that generates the basic concepts of mathematics from their philosophical meanings. Hopkins explores how Husserl and Klein came to their conclusion and its philosophical implications for the modern project of formalizing all knowledge.
