Godel remark on mathematical reality
In "Address at the Princeton University Bicentennial conference
on problems of mathematics (Dec 17-19, 1946), by Tarsky
printed in the Bulletin of Symbolic Logic Vol 6. Num 1 March 2000 
pp 1-44 Godel is cited for having said that in his opinion classical
mathematics has meaning (i.e. describes some reality) and that
failure to assume this (at least as a working hypothesis) must
psychologically work as a hindrance in research.
