The Arche Papers on the Mathematics of Abstraction - The Western Ontario Series in Philosophy of Science 71 (Paperback)Roy T. Cook (editor)
- We can order this
This volume collects together a number of important papers concerning both the method of abstraction generally and the use of particular abstraction principles to reconstruct central areas of mathematics along logicist lines. Attention is focused on extending the Neo-Fregean treatment to all of mathematics, with the reconstruction of real analysis from various cut- or cauchy-sequence-related abstraction principles and the reconstruction of set theory from various restricted versions of Basic Law V as case studies.
