Tracking reason : proof, consequence, and truth by Jody Azzouni( Book )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 323 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."--Jacket
Deflating existential consequence : a case for nominalism by Jody Azzouni( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 267 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

Knowledge and reference in empirical science by Jody Azzouni( Book )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 239 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?"--Jacket
Semantic perception : how the illusion of a common language arises and persists by Jody Azzouni( Book )

18 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
