  1. Margarita Rosa Levin (1986). The New Empiricism in the Philosophy of Mathematics. Dissertation, University of Minnesota
    This thesis presents and criticizes Hilary Putnam's argument that mathematics is as empirical as science, in particular the argument that the switch from Euclidean geometry to Riemannian geometry as the approporiate geometry for physical space constituted an instance of revising mathematics as a result of observation. The thesis explains Putnam's views on mathematics as following from his theory of meaning and reference for natural kind terms.
