520    L.E.J. Brouwer (1881-1966) is best known for his 
       revolutionary ideas on topology and foundations of 
       mathematics (intuitionism). The present collection 
       contains a mixture of letters; university and faculty 
       correspondence has been included, some of which shed light
       on the student years, and in particular on the exchange of
       letters with his PhD adviser, Korteweg. Acting as the 
       natural sequel to the publication of Brouweŕ鳠biography, 
       this book provides instrumental reading for those wishing 
       to gain a deeper understanding of Brouwer and his role in 
       the twentieth century. Striking a good balance of 
       biographical and scientific information, the latter deals 
       with innovations in topology (Cantor-Schoenflies style and
       the new topology) and foundations. The topological period 
       in his research is well represented in correspondence with
       Hilbert, Schoenflies, Poincaré, Blumenthal, Lebesgue, Baire
       , Koebe, and foundational topics are discussed in letters 
       exchanged with Weyl, Fraenkel, Heyting, van Dantzig and 
       others. There is also a large part of correspondence on 
       matters related to the interbellum scientific politics. 
       This book will appeal to both graduate students and 
       researchers with an interest in topology, the history of 
       mathematics, the foundations of mathematics, philosophy 
       and general science.
