  Inconsistent Mathematics -
Inconsistent mathematics is the study of the mathematical theories that result when classical mathematical axioms are asserted within the framework of a (non-classical) logic which can tolerate the presence of a contradiction without turning every sentence into a theorem. By Chris Mortensen, from the Stanford Encyclopedia.
  Constructive Mathematics -
Constructive mathematics is distinguished from its traditional counterpart, classical mathematics, by the strict interpretation of the phrase `there exists' as `we can construct'. In order to work constructively, we need to re-interpret not only the existential quantifier but all the logical connectives and quantifiers as instructions on how to construct a proof of the statement involving these logical expressions. From the Stanford Encyclopedia.
  On Gödel's Philosophy of Mathematics -
A paper by Harold Ravitch, Los Angeles Valley College.
  Nineteenth Century Geometry -
Philosophical-historical survey of the development of geometry in the 19th century. From the Stanford Encyclopedia, by Roberto Toretti.
  Intuitionistic Logic -
Intuitionistic logic encompasses the principles of logical reasoning which were used by L. E. J. Brouwer in developing his intuitionistic mathematics, beginning in [1907]. Because these principles also underly Russian recursive analysis and the constructive analysis of E. Bishop and his followers, intuitionistic logic may be considered the logical basis of constructive mathematics. From the Stanford Encyclopedia.
  Mathematical Structures Group -
Research topics include mathematical models and theories in the empirical sciences, models and theories in mathematics, category theory, and the use of mathematical structures in theoretical computer science. Bibliographic data.
  Indispensability Arguments in the Philosophy of Mathematics -
From the fact that mathematics is indispensable to science, some philosophers have drawn serious metaphysical conclusions. In particular, Quine and Putnam have argued that the indispensability of mathematics to empirical science gives us good reason to believe in the existence of mathematical entities. From the Stanford Encyclopedia.
  The Logical and Metaphysical Foundations of Classical Mathematics -
