#### From Kant to Hilbert Volume 1

OUP Oxford 2005; US$ 99.99This two-volume work brings together a comprehensive selection of mathematical works from the period 1707-1930. During this time the foundations of modern mathematics were laid, and From Kant to Hilbert provides an overview of the foundational work in each of the main branches of mathmeatics with narratives showing how they were linked. Now available... more...

#### A Structural Account of Mathematics

Clarendon Press 2003; US$ 62.99Charles Chihara's new book develops 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... more...

#### The Limits of Abstraction

Clarendon Press 2002; US$ 37.99Kit Fine develops a Fregean theory of abstraction, and suggests that it may yield a new philosophical foundation for mathematics, one that can account for both our reference to various mathematical objects and our knowledge of various mathematical truths. The Limits of Abstraction breaks new ground both technically and philosophically, and will be... more...

#### Wittgenstein, Finitism, and the Foundations of Mathematics

OUP Oxford 1998; US$ 47.99Mathieu Marion traces the development of Wittgenstein's thinking from the 1920s through to the 1950s, in the context of the mathematical and philosophical work of the time, making sense of ideas that have often been misunderstood. He shows that study of Wittgenstein's writings on mathematics is essential to a proper understanding of his philosophy. more...

#### Berkeley's Philosophy of Mathematics

University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 37.00In this first modern, critical assessment of the place of mathematics in Berkeley's philosophy and Berkeley's place in the history of mathematics, Douglas M. Jesseph provides a bold reinterpretation of Berkeley's work. Jesseph challenges the prevailing view that Berkeley's mathematical writings are peripheral to his philosophy and argues that mathematics... more...

#### Foundational Theories of Classical and Constructive Mathematics

Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 165.36Focusing on the foundations, this volume explores both classical and constructive mathematics. Its great advantage is to extend the traditional discussion of the foundations of mathematics and to render it at the same time both subtle and more differentiated. more...
