A conversation about numbers

Philosophia 29 (1-4):191-209 (2002)
Abstract
This is a dialogue in which five characters are involved. Various issues in the philosophy of mathematics are discussed. Among those issues are these: numbers as abstract objects, our knowledge of numbers as abstract objects, a proof as showing a mathematical statement to be true as opposed to the statement being true in virtue of having a proof.
Keywords numbers as abstract objects  our knowledge of numbers as abstract objects  Goedel  proof and truth
