Is this what dedekind wants us to believe the second mystery revolves around dedekind's famous essay on continuity, stetigkeit and irrationale zahlen we uncover the mystery by asking, “how can dedekind claim to have captured — in his definition of 'real number' — the essence of the continuum and, at the very same.
