This talk presents foundations of mathematics as a historically variable set of principles appealing to various modes of human intuition and devoid of any prescriptive/prohibitive power. At each turn of history, foundations crystallize the accepted norms of interpersonal and intergenerational transfer and justification of mathematical knowledge.

15 pages. Talk at the international interdisciplinary conference "Philosophy, Mathematics, Linguistics: Aspects of Interaction", Euler Mathematical Institute, St Petersburg, May 22-25, 2012
