Philosophy Society, A. Burov, “Mathematical Platonism”, Thu, Dec 15, 12:00, Req Room (WH4NW)

“Mathematical Platonism as a Necessity of Reason”:

Mathematical Platonism will be presented in quotes of great mathematicians: Poincare, Russell, Gödel, Hardy, Dyson, Penrose. What role did play this metaphysical view for mathematics and physics? What are arguments contra Platonism? Can pro and contra-platonist arguments be reconciled to some degree? If Math World does exist independently of us, where does it? What are associated theological problems?

Everybody is welcome. Feel free to come with your lunch
