Kant’s Philosophy of Mathematical Practice
Friday, November 4, 2022

Lisa Shabel, Ohio State University
Kant’s metaphysical project is framed by his revolutionary claim that some judgments are both synthetic and a priori knowable: one must seek their justification independent of sense experience (i.e., they are a priori) and yet the meaning of such judgments cannot be grasped via conceptual analysis (i.e., they are non-analytic). Kant claims further that allmathematical truths have this distinctive character, and he came to this view by reflecting on mathematical practice. We will discuss how to understand Kant’s view of mathematical truth in light of the mathematics with which he was engaged.
