[SR: 1359098], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780199596188], Oxford University Press, Oxford University Press, Book, [PU: Oxford University Press], Oxford University Press, Mathematics depends on proofs, and proofs must begin somewhere, from some fundamental assumptions. For nearly a century, the axioms of set theory have played this role, so the question of how these axioms are properly judged takes on a central importance. Approaching the question from a broadly naturalistic or second-philosophical point of view, Defending the Axioms isolates the appropriate methods for such evaluations and investigates the ontological and epistemological backdrop that makes them appropriate. In the end, a new account of the objectivity of mathematics emerges, one refreshingly free of metaphysical commitments., 13871, History & Philosophy, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13983, Probability & Statistics, 226699, Applied, 13884, Mathematics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13953, Set Theory, 226698, Pure Mathematics, 13884, Mathematics, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11019, Philosophy, 11021, Aesthetics, 15811681, Analytic Philosophy, 11023, Consciousness & Thought, 886132, Criticism, 11025, Eastern, 11035, Epistemology, 11037, Ethics & Morality, 11041, Free Will & Determinism, 11045, Good & Evil, 11047, Greek & Roman, 11049, History & Surveys, 11053, Logic & Language, 11054, Medieval Thought, 11055, Metaphysics, 15811591, Methodology, 11057, Modern, 11059, Modern Renaissance, 886134, Movements, 11065, Political, 11070, Reference, 11072, Religious, 15811601, Social Philosophy, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 468232, Philosophy, 491424, Aesthetics, 684279011, Epistemology, 491426, Ethics, 491428, History & Surveys, 684280011, Logic, 491432, Metaphysics, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491548, Statistics, 468218, Mathematics, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
