Perspectives on mathematical practices - (international conference 24-26 October 2002)

Project Details

Description

In recent times a shift is taking place from a philosophy of mathematics that is highly theoretical (so-called 'foundational studies) to a philosophy of mathematics that takes mathematical practice itself as a starting point (as was done in the seminal work of Imre Lakatos). This international meeting wants to present a state of the art in order to show that a new field of research is in the making.
