Philosophy of mathematics: Making a fresh start
Abstract The paper distinguishes between two kinds of mathematics, natural mathematics which is a result of biological evolution and artificial mathematics which is a result of cultural evolution. OnExpand
The Effect of Computers on Pure Mathematics
TLDR
The philosophical implications of the computers in mathematics are investigated by recounting the controversy following the proof of the Four-Colour Theorem, then the famous Jaffe-Quinn discussions, and the discipline called experimental mathematics is examined. Expand
Epistemologies of Mathematics and of Mathematics Education
This chapter addresses issues concerning epistemology, as they relate to mathematics and education. It commences with an examination of some of the main epistemological questions concerning truth,Expand
Diagrams in Mathematics
In the last few decades there has been a revival of interest in diagrams in mathematics. But the revival, at least at its origin, has been motivated by adherence to the view that the method ofExpand
Did Hermann and Robert Graßmann Contribute to the Emergence of Formal Axiomatics
This paper provides a critical assessment of the most influential ideas advanced by contemporary historians of mathematics in connection with the contribution of Hermann Grasmann to the of emergenceExpand
Mathematics of our day
To categorize the innumerable works which are published every year in mathematics is a superhuman task, on account of the close-knit network, almost impossible to unravel, of links which bindExpand
The Role of Principle of Continuity in the Development of Mathematical Knowledge
When imaginary numbers were first encountered in the 16th century, mathematicians were able to calculate the imaginary numbers the same as they are today. However, it required 200 years toExpand
Varieties of mathematical prose
This article begins the development of a taxonomy of mathematical prose, describing the precise function and meaning of specic types of mathematical exposition. It further discusses the merits andExpand
Proof: A Many-Splendored Thing
In a 1993 article, Jaffe and Quinn, concerned that “today in certain areas there is again a trend toward basing mathematics on intuitive reasoning without proof” (Bull Am Math Soc 29:1–13, 1993),Expand
The Pure and the Applied: Bourbakism Comes to Mathematical Economics
In the minds of many, the Bourbakist trend in mathematics was characterized by pursuit of rigor to the detriment of concern for applications or didactic concessions to the nonmathematician, whichExpand
