Thiel I 347
Continuum/Brouwer: Brouwer sees the continuum, in contrast to Cantor, who regarded it as a finished infinite whole, and also in contrast to the French functional theorists and Weyl, who conceived it as a countable set of constructible elements, as a "medium of free development". Intuitively given, but not countable.
