Abstract

Without attempting to cover all the philosophical questions posed by modern mathematics, provides a glimpse of a broad vision of the subject. Covering general philosophical perspectives, foundational approaches, the applicability of mathematics, and history, treats selected topics from a variety of perspectives to demonstrate the range of practices in the discipline. Among them are moderate mathematical fictionism, categorical foundations of the protean character of mathematics, the mathematical overdetermination of physics, and Hungarian traditions and the philosophy of non-classical logic. The 21 papers were presented at a meeting of the International Academy of Philosophy of Science, held in Budapest in May 1993. No index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.
