When ordinary people--mathematicians among them--take something to follow (deductively) from something else, they are exposing the backbone of our self-ascribed ability to reason. Jody Azzouni investigates the connection between that ordinary notion of consequence and the formal analogues invented by logicians. One claim of the book is that, despite our apparent intuitive grasp of consequence, we do not introspect rules by which we reason, nor do we grasp the scope and range of the domain, as it were, of our reasoning. This point is illustrated with a close analysis of a paradigmatic case of ordinary reasoning: mathematical proof.

About the Author:


Jody Azzouni is Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University. He also the author of Deflating Existential Consequence (OUP 2004).

Review:


"Tracking Reason introduces exciting new ideas and proposes original and sophisticated solutions to difficult philosophical problems. Any reader interested in the philosophy of logic, language, or mathematicswill no doubt benefit from Azzouni's careful and detailed development and defense of these views."--Mathematical Reviews
