Recently, concepts as mathematical understanding and mathematical meaning are becoming issues in philosophy of mathematics. Particularly interesting is that such topics border on semantics. one earnestly wonder how semantical issues can be sorted out in mathematics even though any mention of number calls into the human mind images of its supposed meaning and value. We may even be able to claim this knowledge but that would be as simple intuition which is readily crippled as we try to formalize it or as our numbers increase.
