about

Geoffrey Hellman presents a detailed interpretation of mathematics as the investigation of structural possibilities, as opposed to absolute, Platonic objects. After dealing with the natural numbers and analysis, he extends his approach to set theory, and shows how to dispense with a fixeduniverse of sets. Finally, he addresses problems of application to the physical world.
Geoffrey Hellman is at University of Minnesota.
