Dummett's views are rather different from Brouwer's.
Dummett takes a line that in a philosophical sense derives from his own
views on language and meaning (not necessarily mathematical language but
English, french, etc. natural language).
D's views are bets characterized, it seems to me as verificationist,
rather than subjectivist.
It is a thorny issue whether this should be reflected in the
mathematical results one wants to found, ground or otherwise discuss.
The two appear to me independent.
