I am sad with the death of a greater philosopher. He wrote dozens of books and hundreds of articles, that appeared in over nine languages. I wanted to remember especially "How Can the Phenomenologist Have a Philosophy of Mathematics?", published in the book "Phenomenology and Mathematics", edited by Mirja Hartimo.
