New Entries in Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy on the Philosophy of Mathematics

Under the editorial guidance of Roy Cook a number of new entries in philosophy of mathematics have appeared on the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy. As I understand it, the aim of this site is to present relatively short summaries which are accessible to a wider audience, esp. undergraduate students, than some other options.

Check out these recent entries:

Bolzano's Philosophy of Mathematical Knowledge (by Sandra Lapointe)

The Applicability of Mathematics (by me -- more shameless self-promotion!)

Mathematical Platonism (by Julian Cole)

Predicative and Impredicative Definitions (by Oystein Linnebo)

A list of the all of the philosophy of mathematics entries can be monitored here.

Le réel is in French, my Septem Artes series both English and French. Both includes observations pertaining somehow or other to Mathematic philosophy.
