Editorial Reviews


"For over twenty years, Michael D. Resnik has been crafting a philosophical view of mathematics: one remarkably sensitive to the opposing tensions that make philosophizing in this domain so difficult....The resulting book is perfect for classroom use: it's extremely clear, and Resnik ensures that even the novice is with him at every stage."--Journal of Symbolic Logic

"Resnik has presented an admirably clear discussion of the main issues and arguments that define the philosophy of mathematics. His excellent exposition of the issues and his exploration of new solutions constitute an important advance in the discussion."--History & Philosophy of Logic

"...the resulting book is perfect for classroom use: it is extremely clear....[The book] articulates an ambitious and forceful position...I recommend it without reservation to everyone interested in these topics."--Journal of Symbolic Logic
