            Mathematical objects are exceptional in having no locations in space or time or relations of cause and effect. Thus it is difficult to account for the possibility of knowledge of these objects. This text offers an account of a dozen strategies for a nominalistic interpretation of... mathmatics.

            The requirement to reason logically forms the basis of all mathematics, and hence mathematical logic is one of the most fundamental topics that students study. Assuming no prior knowledge of the topic, this book provides an introduction for advanced undergraduate students. The co...ncept of model underlies the text, giving it a theoretical coherence.
