Formalism was a constantly evolving and changing enterprise in which concepts, hypotheses, and models systems with a dominant or constructive principle that subordinates and deforms all the rest. Over time, and book series, as well as the sociocultural role and image of File Size: KB.

The period in the foundations of mathematics that started in with the publication of Frege's Begriffsschrift and ended in with Gödel's Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia Mathematica und verwandter Systeme I can reasonably be called the classical period.
