#### The Argument of Mathematics

Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 179.00This book presents a comprehensive investigation into the relationship between argumentation theory and the philosophy of mathematical practice. It offers large array of examples ranging from the history of mathematics to formal proof verification. more...

#### Platonism and Anti-Platonism in Mathematics

Oxford University Press 1998; US$ 49.99A 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...

#### Networking of Theories as a Research Practice in Mathematics Education

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00How can we deal with the diversity of theories in mathematics education? This was the main question that led the authors of this book to found the Networking Theories Group. Starting from the shared assumption that the existence of different theories is a resource for mathematics education research, the authors have explored the possibilities of interactions... more...

#### A Structural Account of Mathematics

Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 62.99Charles 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.
