those questions come up from any try and observe an epistemology for arithmetic. This choice of essays considers a number of questions in regards to the nature of justification in arithmetic and attainable assets of that justification. between those are the query of even if mathematical justification is a priori or a posteriori in personality, even if logical and mathematical vary, and if formalization performs an important position in mathematical justification,
