Existence | Berka I 294 Existence/consistency/concept/Hilbert: If one assigns features to a concept which contradict themself, so I say: the concept does not exist mathematically. FregeVsHilbert/(s): would say the concept can exist, but there is no object for it. Existence/number/Hilbert: the existence of a concept is proved if it can be shown that there are never contradictions in the application of a finite number of logical conclusions. This would prove the existence of a number or a function. --- I 294/295 Real numbers/existence/axioms/Hilbert: here the consistency is a proof for the axioms and it is also the proof for the existence of the continuum. |
