PSA: Proceedings of the Biennial Meeting of the Philosophy of Science Association 1992:433 - 441 (1992)
Foundational work in mathematics by some of the other participants in the symposium helps towards answering the question whether a heterodox mathematics could in principle be used as successfully as is orthodox mathematics in scientific applications. This question is turn, it will be argued, is relevant to the question how far current science is the way it is because the world is the way it is, and how far because we are the way we are, which is a central question, if not the central question, of philosophy of science.
