Errett Bishop (1928–1983) was responsible for reviving interest in constructive mathematics as a branch of mathematics. Before this, he had a career in areas of classical (i.e., non-constructive) analysis, including approximation theory?, several complex variables, function algebras, and other fields.
See Bishop's constructive mathematics for a detailed discussion of the system he developed. Bishop's important works in constructive mathematics include:
On constructive mathematics in general and constructive analysis in particular
“Schizophrenia in contemporary mathematics” (1973), a philosophical attack on nonconstructive mathematics;
