Mathematics and Mind
Those inquiring into the nature of mind have long been interested in the foundations of mathematics and vice versa. A better understanding of mathematical thought should clarify the conceptual foundations of mathematics, and a deeper grasp of the latter should in turn illuminate the powers of mind through which mathematics is made available to us. This volume's contributors have taken the link between conceptions of mind and mathematics as their topic, exploring and probing it from different perspectives.
