Tracking reason proof, consequence, and truth by Jody Azzouni ( )
23 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Ordinary people - mathematicians among them - grasp when they take something to follow (deductively) from something ease. This is the backbone of our self-ascribed ability to reason. This book investigates the connection between that ordinary notion of consequence and the formal analogues developed by logicians. One crucial claim of the book is that, despite our apparent intuitive grasp of when something follows from something else, we have no introspective access to the rules by which we reason, nor to the scope and range of the domain, as it were, of our reasoning. The point is illustrated with a close analysis of a paradigmatic case of ordinary reasoning: mathematical proof."--BOOK JACKET
Deflating existential consequence a case for nominalism by Jody Azzouni ( )
18 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If we take mathematical statements to be true, must we also believe in the existence of abstract invisible mathematical objects? This text claims that the way to escape such a commitment is to accept true statements which are about objects that don't exist in any sense at all
Metaphysical myths, mathematical practice : the ontology and epistemology of the exact sciences by Jody Azzouni ( Book )
19 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book will be of special interest to philosophers of science, mathematics, logic, and language. It should also interest mathematicians themselves
Talking about nothing : numbers, hallucinations, and fictions by Jody Azzouni ( Book )
23 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This work reconfigures metaphysics in radical ways that allow the accommodation of our ordinary ways of speaking of what does not exist while retaining the absolutely crucial presupposition that such objects exist in no way at all, have no properties, and are not the truth-makers for the truths and falsities that are about them
Knowledge and reference in empirical science by Jody Azzouni ( Book )
12 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Knowledge and Reference in Empirical Science is a study of the bounds between science and language: In what sense, and of what, does science provide knowledge? Is it to be taken literally? Is science an instrument only distantly related to what's real? Can the language of science be used to adequately describe the truth?"--BOOK JACKET
Semantic perception : how the illusion of a common language arises and persists by Jody Azzouni ( Book )
12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jody Azzouni argues that we involuntarily experience certain physical items, certain products of human actions, and certain human actions themselves as having meaning-properties
