Kitcher, Philip


This book argues against the view that mathematical knowledge is a priori,contending that mathematics is an empirical science and develops historically,just as natural sciences do. Kitcher presents a complete, systematic, andrichly detailed account of the nature of mathematical knowledge and itshistorical development, focusing on such neglected issues as how and whymathematical language changes, why certain questions assume overridingimportance, and how standards of proof are modified.Kitcher, Philip is the author of 'Nature of Mathematical Knowledge' with ISBN 9780195035414 and ISBN 0195035410.
