"Maddy's knowledge of early and contemporary set theory, and of philosophically significant parts of the history of mathematics generally, is impressively wide and deep, and her discussions of these matters are illuminating and rewarding. She writes in a clear, forthright and challenging style. Her book is eminently readable, instructive, and thought-provoking."--The Journal of Symbolic Logic
