Krieg der Frösche und der Màuse (51)

Brouwer's attitude was in the same thoroughly German nationalist tone.
He presumes to act as a sort of German agent in dealing with the
Italians and the international organization. Karl Menger, who had just
been Brouwer's Assisiant in 1925-27, spoke of "Brouwer's precarious
relations with the French officials of the Union Mathématique
Internationale"; how "Brouwer's hatred in those years was concentrated
on the French" was what kept his "endless and very unpleasant
correspondence" going with the international organization. In 1928, of
course, this crisis reached its culmination with the Bologna congress.
Brouwer also circulated a letter urging a German counterboycott of the
Bologna congress, about two weeks prior to its opening.
Thus, not only was the Bieberbach of 1914, who was then a modified
formalist, by 1926 enthusiastically and aggressively in the opposing
mathematical-philosophical camp led by L.E.J. Brouwer, and viewing
intuitionism as the coming future of mathematics, but in 1928 he was
making common mathematical-political cause with Brouwer in advocacy of
an extreme German nationalist position. Furthermore, he was supported
in this by two of the other three Berlin Ordinaren: Erhard Schmidt and
Richard von Mises.
{{76 Deutsche schlossen sich der Berliner National-Intuition nicht an,
sondern fuhren nach Bologna, wo sich nur 56 Franzosen einfanden.}}

Warum siehst Du Dir nicht besser die Artikel
in den Mathematischen Annalen an?
Im 72. Band zum Beispiel:
http://gdz.sub.uni-goettingen.de/dm...81684_0072
mit Hilbert als Herausgeber gibt es drei Artikel von Brouwer,
einen von Bieberbach und einen von Hilbert.
