## Abstract

In the first part an outline is presented of the emergent new field of the

study and the philosophy of mathematical practices, including (the philosophy of)

mathematics education. In the second part the focus is on particular themes within

this field that correspond more or less to my personal contributions over a

thirty-year period. As the title of this contribution indicates the relations and connections

between the study of mathematical practices and ‘mainstream’ philosophy

of mathematics need not be antagonistic but rather are to be seen as mutually

beneficial.
