Proof, Logic and Formalization addresses the various problems associated with finding a philosophically satisfying account of mathematical proof. It brings together many of the most notable figures currently writing on this issue in an attempt to explain why it is that mathematical proof is given prominence over other forms of mathematical justification. The difficulties that arise in accounts of proof range from the rightful role of logical inference and formalization to questions concerning the place of experience in proof and the possibility of eliminating impredictive reasoning from proof. Students and lecturers of philosophy, philosophy of logic, and philosophy of mathematics will find this to be essential reading. A companion volume entitled Proof and Logic in Mathematics is also available from Routledge.
