Book Description Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Springer Palgrave Macmillan | An Introduction to Mathematical Platonism | What is mathematics about? And how can we have access to the reality it is supposed to describe? The book tells the story of this problem, first raised by Plato, through the views of Aristotle, Proclus, Kant, Frege, Gödel, Benacerraf, up to the most recent debate on mathematical platonism. | What is mathematics about? And if it is about some sort of mathematical reality, how can we have access to it? This is the problem raised by Plato, which still today is the subject of lively philosophical disputes. This book traces the history of the problem, from its origins to its contemporary treatment. It discusses the answers given by Aristotle, Proclus and Kant, through Frege's and Russell's versions of logicism, Hilbert's formalism, Gödel's platonism, up to the the current debate on Benacerraf's dilemma and the indispensability argument. Through the considerations of themes in the philosophy of language, ontology, and the philosophy of science, the book aims at offering an historically-informed introduction to the philosophy of mathematics, approached through the lenses of its most fundamental problem. | Preface Terminological Conventions Introduction The Origins From Frege to Gödel (through Hilbert) Benacerraf's Arguments Non-conservative Responses to Benacerraf's Dilemma Conservative Responses to Benacerraf's Dilemma The Indispensability Argument: Structure and Basic Notions The Indispensability Argument: The Debate Conclusion Notes References Index | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 407 gr | 199x157x17 mm | 324 pp. Seller Inventory # K9780230365490
