… I am still full of this eerie feeling: a speaker after speaker was talking about mathematics and mathematicians, but, in their descriptions, I could not recognise neither mathematics, nor myself. I was non-existent in the spooky world of philosophy.

There is something wrong with philosophy of mathematics. Perhaps organisations like AMS and LMS should start sending hit squads of professional mathematicians to every conference on philosophy, methodology or sociology of mathematics, so that they could publicly refute at least most obvious bullshit being told from podia. Why not call this Mathematics Patrol programme?
