    Some Remarks on the Physicalist Account of Mathematics.Ferenc Csatári - 2011 - Open Journal of Philosophy 2 (2):165.
    The paper comments on a rather uncommon approach to mathematics called physicalist formalism. According to this view, the formal systems mathematicians concern with are nothing more and nothing less than genuine physical systems. I give a brief review on the main theses, then I provide some arguments, concerning mostly with the practice of mathematics and the uniqueness of formal systems, aiming to show the implausibility of this radical view.
