DESCRIPTION:Alexander Esenin Volpin has worked fro
m the seventies and eighties on a very radical app
roach to the Foundations of Mathematics: ultra-int
uitionism (see e.g. "The ultra-intuitionistic crit
icism and the anti-traditional program for foundat
ions of mathematics" in "Intuitionism and Proof Th
eory", Kino, Myhill, Vesley eds., North-Holland, 1

ber of people, among which Parikh, Ehrenfeucht, Vo
penka to logical work realizing some of his ideas
in formal settings.
