    Lakatos as Historian of Mathematics.Brendan P. Larvor - 1997 - Philosophia Mathematica 5 (1):42-64.
    This paper discusses the connection between the actual history of mathematics and Lakatos's philosophy of mathematics, in three parts. The first points to studies by Lakatos and others which support his conception of mathematics and its history. In the second I suggest that the apparent poverty of Lakatosian examples may be due to the way in which the history of mathematics is usually written. The third part argues that Lakatos is right to hold philosophy accountable to history, even if Lakatos's (...)

    Book Review: What is a Mathematical Concept? Edited by Elizabeth de Freitas, Nathalie Sinclair, and Alf Coles.Brendan P. Larvor - 2019 - Journal of Humanistic Mathematics 9 (2):309-322.
    This is a review of What is a Mathematical Concept? edited by Elizabeth de Freitas, Nathalie Sinclair, and Alf Coles. In this collection of sixteen chapters, philosophers, educationalists, historians of mathematics, a cognitive scientist, and a mathematician consider, problematise, historicise, contextualise, and destabilise the terms ‘mathematical’ and ‘concept’. The contributors come from many disciplines, but the editors are all in mathematics education, which gives the whole volume a disciplinary centre of gravity. The editors set out to explore and reclaim the (...)
