Analysis, History, and Intelligibility: An Essay on the Philosophy of Mathematics

My project is to write a book that will bring philosophy of mathematics into deeper relation with both the history of mathematics and the history of philosophy. Entitled "Analysis, History and Intelligibility: An Essay in the Philosophy of Mathematics," it will revive certain important features of 17th c. Rationalist epistemology (the use of analysis as a search for conditions of intelligibility, the subordination and deferral of sense perception) and focus on problems that have been neglected by 20th c. Anglo-American philosophy of mathematics: how to account for the diversity of mathematical objects, how to relate justification procedures to discovery procedures, how to relate mathematics to history.
