    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 83.82

    To mathematicians, mathematics is a happy game, to scientists a mere tool and to philosophers a Platonic mystery - or so the caricature runs.

As one of that small group of Popper's... more...

But there is... more...

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 83.82
