Kant’s Philosophy of Mathematics: Modern Essays appeared in 1992.1 It was a pioneering effort designed to announce and promote a newly minted renaissance in the study of Kant’s philosophy of mathematics, and it set the agenda for a generation of scholars in this field. Indeed, since that anthology appeared, the study of Kant’s philosophy of mathematics has solidified into a well-established area of study within the philosophy of mathematics and within the study of the history of philosophy. The present two-volume collection aims to give a snapshot view of this thriving academic field. What has grown in the quarter-century separating these two collections is a fine-grained analysis of Kant’s philosophy of mathematics in the context of his overall philosophy as well as a historical sensitivity to its background. There has also been a spate of interest in taking these studies further, to see how the perception of Kant influenced nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophy of mathematics. The present two-volume collection displays the recent developments in all of these directions.
The late 1960s saw the emergence of new philosophical interest in Kant's philosophy of mathematics, and since then this interest has developed into a major and dynamic field of study. In this state-of-the-art survey of contemporary scholarship on Kant's mathematical thinking, Carl Posy and Ofra Rechter gather leading authors who approach it from multiple perspectives, engaging with topics including geometry, arithmetic, logic, and metaphysics. Their essays offer fine-grained analysis of Kant's philosophy of mathematics in the context of his Critical philosophy, and also show sensitivity to its historical background. The volume will be important for readers seeking a comprehensive picture of the current scholarship about the development of Kant's philosophy of mathematics, its place in his overall philosophy, and the Kantian themes that influenced mathematics and its philosophy after Kant.
