  • Making and Breaking Mathematical Senseby Roi Wagner

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 45.00 US$ 40.95

    In line with the emerging field of philosophy of mathematical practice, this book pushes the philosophy of mathematics away from questions about the reality and truth of mathematical entities and statements and toward a focus on what mathematicians actually do?and how that evolves and changes over time. How do new mathematical entities come to be?... more...

  • Visual Culture and Mathematics in the Early Modern Periodby Ingrid Alexander-Skipnes

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    During the early modern period there was a natural correspondence between how artists might benefit from the knowledge of mathematics and how mathematicians might explore, through advances in the study of visual culture, new areas of enquiry that would uncover the mysteries of the visible world. This volume makes its contribution by offering new interdisciplinary... more...
