Book Description
Mathematics as a Science of Patterns expounds a system of ideas about the nature of mathematics which Michael Resnik has been elaborating for a number of years. In calling mathematics a science he implies that it has a factual subject-matter and that mathematical knowledge is on a par with other scientific knowledge; in calling it a science of patterns he expresses his commitment to a structuralist philosophy of mathematics. He links thisto a defence of realism about the metaphysics of mathematics--the view that mathematics is about things that really exist.
