A TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN REVIEW Philosophy and Mathematics I: Selected Papers from the John J. Cleary Memorial Conference Introduction


Abstract


From the 27th through the 29th of May 2010, scholars from around the world gathered at Trinity College Dublin to celebrate the life and work of the late Professor John J. Cleary. This memorial took the form of an academic conference on the, somewhat general, topic 'Philosophy and Mathematics'. The conference's broad theme allowed for papers on a variety of issues that spanned the equally wide scope of Professor Cleary's research interests. There were presentations on ancient philosophy (including topics in the philosophy of Plato, Aristotle, Euclid and Proclus), the philosophy of mathematics (with themes like time, logic, conceptions of number, the context principle and the transfinite) and the philosophy of education (especially methods in contemporary mathematics education). The breadth of topics, as well as disciplines, made for a stimulating and fruitful dialogue amongst the participants.
