Penelope Maddy between Realism and Naturalism

(Original title: Penelope Maddyová medzi realizmom a naturalizmom)
Filozofia, 65 (2010), 6, 522-537.
Type of work: Papers
Publication language: Slovak

Mathematics is often interpreted as an apriori discipline whose propositions are analytic. The aim of the paper is to support a philosophical position which would view mathematics as a discipline studying its own segment of objective reality and thus contributing to our knowledge of the real world. The author tries to articulate in more details such a position which has been proposed recently by Penelope Maddy.
