CfP special issue of Axiomathes on disagreement in mathematics, Deadline: 15 Aug 2021
Call for Papers: Special Issue Axiomathes
Disagreement in Mathematics
Guest Editors: Colin J. Rittberg (Amsterdam & Brussel) and Deniz Sarikaya
This special issue explores disagreements in mathematical practices.
Disagreements in mathematics have been primarily explored in connection to the
foundational debates. Other instances of disagreement in mathematical
practices, such as about which definitions are most suitable to capture a
mathematical concept, who deserves credit for mathematical results, which
inferential moves are permissible, ethical concerns, or which research
programmes to pursue, have received much less attention in the philosophical
literature. For the special issue we envision contributions that study these
various forms of disagreement. To this end we invite philosophers,
mathematicians, logicians, historians, mathematics educators and others to
contribute to the proposed special issue.
Suitable topics of submissions include but are not limited to:
? permissible inferences in mathematics
? the epistemic status of mathematical results
? the suitability of definitions
? the value of research programmes
? credit allocation for mathematical results
? ethical concerns connected to mathematical research
? the organisation of institutional structures
? how is disagreement overcome in mathematical practices
? the foundations of mathematics
? mathematical pluralism
? logical anti-exceptionalism
The deadline for submission is August 15th, 2021. Submissions will undergo
Axiomathes? standard double-blind refereeing procedure.
Papers should be submitted via the Axiomathes editorial manager at
