Michael Dummett
“Intuition is not a special source of ineffable insight: it is the womb of articulated understanding.”
Michael Dummett, Truth and Other Enigmas

Bertrand Russell
“When I was young, most teachers of philosophy in British and American universities were Hegelians, so that, until I read Hegel, I supposed there must be some truth to his system; I was cured, however, by discovering that everything he said on the philosophy of mathematics was plain nonsense.”
Bertrand Russell, Unpopular Essays
