Mathematical knowledge is context dependent

Grazer Philosophische Studien 76 (1):91-107 (2008)
Abstract
We argue that mathematical knowledge is context dependent. Our main argument is that on pain of distorting mathematical practice, one must analyse the notion of having available a proof, which supplies justification in mathematics, in a context dependent way.
