abstract={The effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences was characterized by the famous Nobel prize holder E. P. Winger as being unreasonable. It is not difficult for one to understand that this characterization is related to a question that has occupied the interest of philosophers, mathematicians and other scientists at least from the Plato¡¯s era in ancient , until today: ¡°Is mathematics discovered or invented by humans¡±? In the present work in an effort to obtain a convincing explanation of the above Winger¡¯s ¡°enigma¡±, the existing philosophical views about the above question are critically examined and discussed in connection with the advances in the history of mathematics that affected the human beliefs about them.},
