            Mathematical objects are exceptional in having no locations in space or time or relations of cause and effect. Thus it is difficult to account for the possibility of knowledge of these objects. This text offers an account of a dozen strategies for a nominalistic interpretation of... mathmatics.

            Mathematics plays a central role in much of contemporary science, but philosophers have struggled to understand what this role is or how significant it might be for mathematics and science. Pincock tackles this perennial question by asking how mathematics contributes to the succe...ss of our best scientific representations.
