New Perspectives on Mathematical Practices. Essays in Philosophy and History of Mathematics

Bart Van Kerkhove (Redacteur)

Onderzoeksoutput: Book

Samenvatting

This volume focuses on the importance of historical enquiry for the appreciation of philosophical problems concerning mathematics. It contains a well-balanced mixture of contributions by internationally extablished experts, such as Jeremy Gray and Jens Hoyrup; upcoming scholars, such as Erich Reck and Dirk Schlimm; and young, promising researchers at the beginning of their careers. The book is situated within a relatively new and broadly naturalistic tradition in the philosophy of mathematics. In this alternative philosophical current, unlike in the traditional schools, proper attention is paid to scientific practices as informing for philosophical accounts.
