Philosophy of Mathematics: Poincare's challenge

Frequently we find brief references to similarities between Poincare's
and the later Wittgenstein's philosophies of arithmetic. Inthis paper we
attempt to systematically exploresome of these similarities.In partcular
we look at Poincare's opposition to the logicist programme and his
rejection of Cantorian infinity and compare his theses to those of the
later Wittgenstein.
