Contemporary philosophy of mathematics offers us an embarrassment of riches.
Among the major areas of work one could list developments of the classical
foundational programs, analytic approaches to epistemology and ontology of
mathematics, and developments at the intersection of history and philosophy of
mathematics. But anyone familiar with contemporary philosophy of mathematics
will be aware of the need for new approaches that pay closer attention to
mathematical practice. This book is the first attempt to give a coherent and
unified presentation of this new wave of work in philosophy of mathematics. The
new approach is innovative at least in two ways. First, it holds that there are
important novel characteristics of contemporary mathematics that are just as
worthy of philosophical attention as the distinction between constructive and
non-constructive mathematics at the time of the foundational debates. Secondly,
it holds that many topics which escape purely formal logical treatment--such as
visualization, explanation, and understanding--can nonetheless be subjected to
philosophical analysis.
