Abstract

It was Kronecker who sought to avoid the use in mathematics of all numbers (negatives, fractions, irrationals) other than the positive integers, and he outlined the means for carrying through this program. In the introductory sections of his memoir he briefly indicates the personal philosophy which made such a project appear desirable.
