MTH 599

Foundations of Mathematical Thought

A one semester course on the nature of mathematical thought. Mathematics is commonly believed to enjoy a degree of certainty which sets it apart from other disciplines. Moreover, this certainty is often confused with veracity, and a science gains respectability as its quantitative component increases. This course will explore the nature and extent of this certainty in mathematics. There are no specific pre-requisites but a previous course in Philosophy or other course requiring logical reasoning is recommended.
