Cezanne’s Greetings

David Corfield on "Aesthetic Theory and Artistic Practice" —

" British naturalism of the nineteenth century is seen to be
based on a theory of art whose origin lies in eighteenth century
philosophy. Collingwood believes this to be a false theory,
as first made clear artistically by Cezanne. Note also that
Collingwood should feel the need to depart from abstract
argument to include the case study.

Exercise: with minimal changes make the above true for
the philosophy of mathematics. Once done, we see how
we should expect to find a philosophy of mathematics
in each mathematician, even if it only functions implicitly.
See Philosophy as Normative or Descriptive.

See as well some philosophical remarks by the late
William J. Richardson, S.J., quoted here  on July 12, 2010.
