  • Platonism and Anti-Platonism in Mathematicsby Mark Balaguer

    Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 44.99

    A demonstration of the value of both platonism and anti-platonism in the solution of mathematical problems. The author solves the important problems associated with both of the views, and demonstrates that it is inherently impossible for us to have a valid argument for or against mathematical platonism. more...

  • What is Mathematics, Really?by Reuben Hersh

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 18.99

  • A Structural Account of Mathematicsby Charles S. Chihara

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 45.00

    Charles Chihara presents a structural view of the nature of mathematics, and uses it to explain a number of striking features of mathematics that have puzzled philosophers for centuries. In particular, this perspective allows Chihara to show that, in order to understand how mathematical systems are applied in science, it is not necessary to assume... more...

  • From Kant to Hilbert, 2by William Bragg Ewald

    Oxford University Press, UK 2005; US$ 98.99

    This two-volume work brings together a comprehensive selection of mathematical works from the period 1707-1930.
