Wright's Strict Finitism
MetadataShow full item record
This master's thesis is devoted to an investigation and a support of the constructivist standpoint called `strict fi?nitism', especially its version which Crispin Wright argued for in his paper `Strict Finitism'. This position stands in the tradition of the semantic realism debate which the British philosopher Michael Dummett spearheaded. Strict fi?nitism represents the severest anti-realist view. While the vast amount of Dummett's work forms a thorough study against realism in favor of anti-realism, the strict ?nitist regards anti-realism as insufficient and opposes it.
