Joint PMA/PSA sessionPosted: 15 August 2014
The Philosophy of Mathematics Association is pleased to announce a PMA/PSA Special Session at this year’s PSA meeting in Chicago, November 6-9th.
Since much of philosophy of science depends on, or at least is informed by, philosophy of mathematics, it is crucial that connections between these research areas be both highlighted and valued. Well-witnessing the varying perspectives and differing investigations of philosophers of mathematics, the topics of this session will include: the history and philosophy of scientific structuralism, mereologically interpreted geometry, and the formal nature of reasoning.
The title of the session is: Perspectives in the Philosophy of Mathematics
Speakers and titles are:
- Audrey Yap: Noether’s Mathematical Structuralism;
- Geoffrey Hellman: Mereological Geometry;
- W.W. Tait: Towards the Unity of Mathematics: Classical and Constructive Reasoning.
