Editorial Reviews

Review

"Brown argues that mathematics does not explain physical phenomena in the sense of accounting for them, but that it does explain them in the sense of making them comprehensible...this is a clear and engaging book, mainly for professional philosophers or graduate students in philosophy, that contains many on-target criticisms of naturalism." - A.C. Paseau, Wadham College, University of Oxford, UK in Philosophia Mathematica

"Brown’s book is a useful addition to recent debates in the philosophy of mathematics." - Christopher Pincock, The Ohio State University, US in Mind
