I XII Analytic/synthetic/Waismann: Mill and Mach claimed that mathematical propositions were of empirical origin, Kant, the arithmetic and geometrical propositions are synthetic judgments a priori. Poincaré: although arithmetic propositions are synthetically a priori, but the geometric ones are analytical. Frege: the arithmetical ones are analytical, the geometric ones are synthetic. Russell: all mathematical propositions are analytical. Today (1947) it is often said that logic is a system of tautologies and mathematics is a part of logic. _____________ Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
