Mathematics in Philosophy

The systematic mapping of the interplay of ontology and epistemology in the context of present day philosophy of mathematics constitutes an important heuristic goal. In order to achieve it, we must analyze and reinterpret the position of mathematics in philosophy. Read More

The authors we have gathered to do so —philosophers, mathematicians and logicians from across Europe— share a significant expertise in the history and the methodology of science and mathematics. Their complementary perspectives bring to light insights and tools that pave the way for new philosophical conceptualisations of the mathematical knowledge.
Pr. Vesselin Petrov holds an M.A. in mathematics (1977), a Ph.D. in philosophy (1989) and a D.Sc. in philosophy (2011). He is Professor and Head of the Department of "Models, Methodologies, and Heuristics" of the Institute for the Study of Societies and Knowledge at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences. His fields of research interest include process philosophy, metaphysics, ontology, applied ontology, philosophy of science and philosophy of mathematics. He is author of four books in Bulgarian and of more than 120 papers in Bulgarian, English, Russian and Chinese. He is also editor of twenty books in Bulgarian and English, among them Ontological Landscapes: Recent Thought on Conceptual Interfaces Between Science and Philosophy (Frankfurt: Ontos Verlag, 2011) and Dynamic Being:
Essays in Process-Relational Ontology (Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015). Professor Petrov is Executive Director (2015 – 2017) of the International Process Network. Pr.
