Philosophy of Mathematics

In philosophy of science and philosophy of mathematics, we ask questions such as:

  • What is the meaning of theoretical terms in science?
  • Is there knowledge of causal relationships?
  • Which types of inter-theoretic relations are there in the various sciences?
  • Why should one reduce one theory to another theory?
  • What is the role of explanations in science and mathematics?
  • Is mathematics the science of structures, and if so, in what sense?
