Abstract

Though by no means a philosopher of mathematics, at the request of the editors Hannes Leitgeb & Vincent Hendricks of "Philosophy of Mathematics, Five Questions", Automatic Press, Roskilde, DK, I state my personal views on what the philosophy of mathematics should be about: real ideas and issues underlying working mathematics, rather than the often highly system-generated concerns of foundational research, which need critical scrutiny.
