Abstract. This project proposes an investigation of the phenomenological approach to axiomatic mathematics, an approach illustrated in the works of Edmund Husserl, Oskar Becker, Dietrich Mahnke, Felix Kaufmann, and Kurt Goedel. It focuses, in particular, on the problems of mathematical understanding and conceptual change, and it aims at providing a novel, naturalistic interpretation of their phenomenological solutions.
