In reply to Gordon Fisher:

My list of supposed successes of intuition over rigor was alluding to Kit
Fine's claim in his book "In defence of arbitrary objects" that when there
is a clash, intuition should prevail over rigor. I intended no echo of
Kantian Anschauungen in my remarks. They are a different matter entirely.
