#### Introducing Philosophy of Mathematics

Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95What is mathematics about? Does the subject-matter of mathematics exist independently of the mind or are they mental constructions? How do we know mathematics? Is mathematical knowledge logical knowledge? And how is mathematics applied to the material world? In this introduction to the philosophy of mathematics, Michele Friend examines these and other... more...

#### The Arche Papers on the Mathematics of Abstraction

Springer 2007; US$ 269.00Collects together important papers concerning both the method of abstraction generally and the use of particular abstraction principles to reconstruct central areas of mathematics along logicist lines. This book focuses on extending the Neo-Fregean treatment to mathematics, and provides a test of the scope and limits of the neo-logicist project. more...

#### The Limits of Abstraction

Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 29.98Kit Fine develops a Fregean theory of abstraction, and suggests that it may yield a new philosophical foundation for mathematics, one that can account for both our reference to various mathematical objects and our knowledge of various mathematical truths. <i>The Limits of Abstraction</i> breaks new ground both technically and philosophically.... more...

#### Essays on the Foundations of Mathematics by Moritz Pasch

Springer 2010; US$ 209.00Moritz Pasch (1843-1930) is justly celebrated as a key figure in the history of axiomatic geometry. Less well known are his contributions to other areas of foundational research. This volume features English translations of 14 papers Pasch published in the decade 1917-1926. In them, Pasch argues that geometry and, more surprisingly, number theory are... more...

#### Foundational Theories of Classical and Constructive Mathematics

Springer 2011; US$ 179.00The book "Foundational Theories of Classical and Constructive Mathematics" is a book on the classical topic of foundations of mathematics.
