Abstract

The field of knowledge known as mathematics is composed of the totality of mathematical systems. A mathematical system consists of a body of propositions known as the axioms. The concern of this paper is with the axioms; in fact, with the change which has taken place during the centuries in the ideas of mathematicians about the axioms.
