About the Authors
  • This collection of new essays offers a "state-of-the-art" conspectus of major trends in the philosophy of logic and philosophy of mathematics. A distinguished group of philosophers addresses issues at the center of contemporary debate: semantic and set-theoretic paradoxes, the set/class distinction, foundations of set theory, mathematical intuition and many others. The volume includes Hilary Putnam's 1995 Alfred Tarski lectures published here for the first time. The essays are presented to honor the work of Charles Parsons.

    • A collection of essays on the philosophy of logic and philosophy of mathematics. We can do well with books in the philosophy of mathematics (e.g. Hintikka, Principles of Mathematics Revisited)
    • Top-notch team of contributors
    • Presents Hilary Putnam's 1995 Alfred Tarski lectures
