In the kind of polemics you describe, does the person arguing on your side
of the debate have to agree to use only certain kinds of methods (to
establish relevant independence results, for example)? Or can that person
use any kind of method ever used in mathematics, for constructing or
defining mathematical objects, and for reasoning about them?
