            Realism in Mathematics (Trade Paperback / Paperback, New edition)

            By Maddy, Penelope

            • OUR PRICE $87.99

            This monograph develops and defends a novel version of mathematical realism - the view that to engage in mathematics is to investigate the features of real mathematical things - and refocuses philosophical attention on the pressing foundational issues of contemporary mathematics.

            By Tennant, Neil

            • OUR PRICE $306.99

            This text poses a broad challenge to the realist views of meaning and truth that have been prominent in recent philosophy. It offers a critical survey of the realism debate, and a defence of the anti-realist view that every truth is knowable in principle.

            By Burgess, John P.; Rosen, Gideon

            • OUR PRICE $104.99

            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 ...
