Nhan đề: The philosophy of mathematical practice / Paolo Mancosu.
Số phân loại : 511.01 P108; Đặc điểm vật lý: xi, 447Tr ; 24 cm.
*Tóm tắt : Contemporary philosophy of mathematics offers us an embarrassment of riches. Among the major areas of work one could list developments of the classical foundational programs, analytic approaches to epistemology and ontology of mathematics, and developments at the intersection of history and philosophy of mathematics. But anyone familiar with contemporary philosophy of mathematics will be aware of the need for new approaches that pay closer attention to mathematical practice. This book is the first attempt to give a coherent and unified presentation of this new wave of work in philosophy of mathematics. The new approach is innovative at least in two ways. First, it holds that there are important novel characteristics of contemporary mathematics that are just as worthy of philosophical attention as the distinction between constructive and nonconstructive mathematics at the time of the foundational debates. Secondly, it holds that many topics which escape purely formal logical treatmentsuch as visualization, explanation, and understandingcan nonetheless be subjected to philosophical analysis. .

Nhan đề: In the light of logic / Solomon Feferma
Số phân loại : 511.3 S428; Đặc điểm vật lý: 340 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : In this collection of essays written over a period of twenty years, Solomon Feferman explains advanced results in modern logic and employs them to cast light on significant problems in the foundations of mathematics. Most troubling among these is the revolutionary way in which Georg Cantor elaborated the nature of the infinite, and in doing so helped transform the face of twentiethcentury mathematics. Feferman details the development of Cantorian concepts and the foundational difficulties they engendered. He argues that the freedom provided by Cantorian set theory was purchased at a heavy philosophical price, namely adherence to a form of mathematical platonism that is difficult to support .

Số phân loại : 511.3 K521; Đặc điểm vật lý: 662 p. : ill. ; 24 cm
*Tóm tắt : Kurt Godel was one of the most outstanding logicians of the twentieth century, famous for his work on the completeness of logic, the incompleteness of number theory, and the consistency of the axiom of choice and the continuum hypothesis. He is also noted for his work on constructivity, the decision problem and the foundations of computation theory, as well as for the strong individuality of his writings on the philosophy of mathematics. He is less well known for his discovery of unusual cosmological models for Einstein's equations, in theory, permitting time travel into the past. The book is the fourth part of a five volume set, which is the first to make available all of Godel's writings in one place. The collected Works of Kurt Godel is designed to be useful and accessible to a wide audience without sacrificing scientific or historical accuracy .

*Tóm tắt : Lewis Hirsch and Arthur Goodman strongly believe that students can understand what they are learning in algebra and why. The authors meticulously explain why things are done in a certain way, illustrate how and why concepts are related and demonstrate how 'new' topics are actually new applications of concepts already learned. The authors introduce topics at an elementary level and return to them at increasing levels of complexity. Their gradual introduction of concepts, rules, and definitions through a wealth of illustrative examples  both numerical and algebraic  helps students compare and contrast related ideas and understand the sometimes subtle distinctions among a variety of situations. Through this learning this author team carefully prepares students to succeed in higherlevel mathematics .
