Philosophy of Mathematics: An Introduction provides a critical analysis of the major philosophical issues and viewpoints in the concepts and methods of mathematics - from antiquity to the modern era.
Offers beginning readers a critical appraisal of philosophical viewpoints throughout history
Gives a separate chapter to predicativism, which is often (but wrongly) treated as if it were a part of logicism
Provides readers with a non-partisan discussion until the final chapter, which gives the author’s personal opinion on where the truth lies
Designed to be accessible to both undergraduates and graduate students, and at the same time to be of interest to professionals
