He was a constructivist logician, who was influential in the development of intuitionistic logic^{[1]} With Georg Kreisel, he was a developer of the theory of choice sequences.^{[2]} He wrote one of the first texts on linear logic,^{[3]} and, with Helmut Schwichtenberg, he co-wrote an important book on proof theory.^{[4]}
