  Philosophy of Mathematics: 5 Questions

  Edited by Vincent F. Hendricks & Hannes Leitgeb

  New York, London: Automatic Press / VIP, 2007

  ISBN 8799101351

  356 pages, $36 / £26


  Philosophy of Mathematics: 5 Questions collects together answers on 5

  provocative questions by many of the leading contemporary figures in

  Philosophy and Mathematics - two of the most fundamental and widely

  applicable intellectual skills. The collection contains ample amount of

  interesting considerations, far beyond what one finds reflected in standard

  texts and together they show that one can have surprising, sometimes

  tortured, but often highly productive relationships between Philosophy

  and Mathematics. In my opinion, this book affords a lot of pleasure to

  the reader.
