Description

Philosophy of Mathematics: An Introduction provides a critical analysis of the major philosophical issues and viewpoints in the concepts and methods of mathematics - from antiquity to the modern era. * Offers beginning readers a critical appraisal of philosophical viewpoints throughout history* Gives a separate chapter to predicativism, which is often (but wrongly) treated as if it were a part of logicism* Provides readers with a non-partisan discussion until the final chapter, which gives the author's personal opinion on where the truth lies* Designed to be accessible to both undergraduates and graduate students, and at the same time to be of interest to professionals
