I'd be curious on how Cynthia relates mathematical theories (like
intuitionism) to pedagogical theories.  What is the "similar views" 
that Poincaré, Brouwer and Gödel are holding?  Is that views about 
pedagogy or views about mathematics (namely intuitionism)?

Can you tell me more about this? (or send me pointers?)
