Courses for Spring 2015: Introduction to Logic
(Ph.D., Stanford University). His interests lie in the philosophy of mathematics and its history, in philosophy of logic, and in mathematical logic. His written work is currently focused upon neologicism and the philosophy of mathematical practice. He has recently published “The Philosophy of Mathematical Practice”(OUP 2008) and “The Adventure of Reason” (Oxford University Press, 2010). His latest book is “Inside the Zhivago Storm. The editorial adventures of Pasternak’s masterpiece” (Feltrinelli 2013), a riveting account of what is probably the most involved politico-literary event in the twentieth century (http://zhivagostorm.org).
