Western Philosophy, From C – Philosophy: Benacerraf and his Critics. Description Paul Benacerraf has dominated the philosophy of mathematics in the beancerraf 25 years.
Arguments derived from Benacerraf’s analyses of the concept of number and the tension between the epistemology and the semantics of matematics are widespread in the rest of philosophy, particulary the philosophy of langauge and metaphysics.
This volume contains ten original essays, discussing Benacerrafian themes within and outside the philosophy of mathematics, and a new essay, “What mathematical truth could not be” by Benaceraff. Within the philosophy of mathematics, the essays discuss the perennial appeal of Platonism in the philosophy of mathematics, the indeterminacy of mathematical ontology, and the legacy of the logicism of Frege and Russell.

Bibliography of Paul Benacerraf to Review quote “For the most part, the articles in this excellent new collection present attempts to rise to the challenges set by these three papers. Together, they show what difficult and far-reaching problems Benacerraf has raised, and what sophisticated thinking about the most fundamental questions in philosophy – questions of meaning, truth and knowledge – is needed even to begin to solve them.
