Hilbert never gave a general account of which operations and methods of proof are acceptable from the finitist standpoint, but only examples of operations and methods of inference in contentual finitary number theory which he accepted as finitary.
Although Hilbert's first proposals focused exclusively on consistency, there is a noticeable development in Hilbert's thinking in the direction of a general reductivist project of a sort quite common in the philosophy of science at the time (as was pointed out by Giaquinto 1983).

For many years, Hilbert held the position at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Göttingen that was recognized as the most prestigious mathematical position in Germany, and possibly, in the world.
Hilbert's scientific activity can be roughly divided into six periods, according to the years of publication of the results: up to 1893 (at Königsberg), algebraic forms; 1894-1899, algebraic number theory; 1899-1903, foundations of geometry; 1904-1909, analysis (Dirichlet's principle, calculus of variations, integral equations, Waring's problem); 1912-1914, theoretical physics; after 1918, foundations of mathematics.

In 1895, Hilbert was appointed to the chair of mathematics at the University of Göttingen, where he continued to teach for the rest of his career.
Hilbert submitted a paper on the subject, and despite objections from Gordan, the world expert on invariant theory, it was accepted.
Hilbert contributed to many branches of mathematics, including invariants, algebraic number fields, functional analysis, integral equations, mathematical physics, and the calculus of variations.

 David Hilbert - Conservapedia
David Hilbert (1862-1943) was a German mathematician who attempted to formalize mathematics in a methodical manner.
He is most famous for listing the 23 greatest unsolved problems of mathematics in the early 1900s, problems that included the Riemann hypothesis, the continuum hypothesis, Goldbach's conjecture, the well ordering of the reals, the transcendence of powers of algebraic numbers and the extension of Dirichlet's principle.
Later, after Hilbert did work in algebraic number theory and geometry, and created the "Hilbert space," he was an early promoter of the general theory of relativity.

 Hilbert, David
Hilberts mathematische Interessen waren weit gestreut, von der Invariantentheorie über die algebraische Zahlentheorie, Grundlagen der Geometrie, Analysis bis hin zur Relativitätstheorie.
Seine herausragenden längeren Arbeiten enthalten den 370 Seiten starken Zahlbericht (1895-7), in dem er einen großen Teil der algebraischen Zahlentheorie überarbeitete, und seinen axiomatischen Zugang der euklidischen Geometrie (1899).
Um 1903 führte Hilbert, bei der Untersuchung eines Problems von Integralgleichungen, den unendlichdimensionalen euklidischen Raum ein, der heute nach ihm benannt wird.

Su padre era juez, y fue destinado al poco de su nacimiento a Königsberg, donde David recibió su educación y en cuya universidad inició los estudios de matemáticas.
La tesis de Hilbert trataba de los invariantes algebraicos, un tema que le propuso su joven profesor F. Lindemann, quien dos años antes había demostrado que «pi» es un número trascendente.
