What is the problem of mathematical knowledge?

In Michael Potter, Mary Leng & Alexander Paseau (eds.), Mathematical Knowledge (2007)
Suggests that the recent emphasis on Benacerraf's access problem locates the peculiarity of mathematical knowledge in the wrong place. Instead we should focus on the sense in which mathematical concepts are or might be "armchair concepts" – concepts about which non-trivial knowledge is obtainable a priori.
