  1. Mathematical Engineering and Mathematical Change.Jean‐Pierre Marquis - 1999 - International Studies in the Philosophy of Science 13 (3):245 – 259.
    In this paper, I introduce and examine the notion of “mathematical engineering” and its impact on mathematical change. Mathematical engineering is an important part of contemporary mathematics and it roughly consists of the “construction” and development of various machines, probes and instruments used in numerous mathematical fields. As an example of such constructions, I briefly present the basic steps and properties of homology theory. I then try to show that this aspect of contemporary mathematics has important consequences on our conception (...)
