Название: Proof and Knowledge in Mathematics
Автор: Detlefsen M. (Ed)
Proof and Knowledge in Mathematics tackles the main problem that arises when considering an epistemology for mathematics, the nature and sources of mathematical justification. Focusing both on particular and general issues, these essays from leading philosophers of mathematics raise important issues for our current understanding of mathematics. Is mathematical justification a priori or a posteriori? What role, if any, does logic play in mathematical reasoning or inference? And how epistemologically important is the formalizability of proof?
Michael Detlefsen has brought together an outstanding collection of essays in a volume which will be essential for philosophers and historians of mathematics who are interested in the nature of reasoning and justification. A companion volume, Proof, Knowledge and Formalization is also available from Routledge.
