#### Platonism and Anti-Platonism in Mathematics

Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 46.99A 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...
