Abstract

Intuitionistically. a set has to be given by a finite construction or by a construction-project generating the elements of the set in the course of time. Quantification is only meaningful if the range of each quantifier is a well-circumscribed set. Thinking upon the meaning of quantification, one is led to insights—in particular, the so-called continuity principles—which are surprising from a classical point of view. We believe that such considerations lie at the basis of Brouwer’s reconstruction of mathematics. The predicate ’α is lawless’ is not acceptable, the lawless sequences do not form a well-circumscribed intuitionistic set, and quantification over lawless sequences does not make sense
