Review

"This book is an important contribution...presenting an original, structuralist philosophy and axiomatic framework in comprehensive detail, placing it in broad philosophical and historical perspective, and comparing it systematically with other approaches seen as leading structuralist alternatives
to the one set forth by Shapiro himself....this is an interesting, important, and thought-provoking book."--Journal of Symbolic Logic

By Joel Zela Casaverde on July 31, 2006
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"Philosophy of Mathematics: Structure and Ontology", es una de las obras fundamentales de uno de los más importantes filósofos de las matemáticas del siglo XXI. Shapiro con una prosa soberbia, por ratos árida, nos presenta y fundamenta, desde el estructuralismo al que pertenece, una visión de las matemáticas. Su libro comienza repasando aspectos generales sobre la filosofía de las matemáticas para que, posteriormente, en el capítulo segundo, nos muestre su propuesta entrando a analizar en detalle su aspecto ontológico y epistemológico. Shapiro finaliza su tratado proponiendo extender el estructuralismo a otras ramas de las matemáticas, la ciencia y el lenguaje natural. Como acertadamente afirma: " Es un trabajo de interés tanto para filósofos como matemáticos"
