Mathematical Entities | Stalnaker I 41 Mathematics/Benacerraf/Stalnaker: (Benacerraf, 1973): Benacerraf sees a tension between the need for a plausible representation of what mathematical statements say and a representation of the way we know that such statements are true. Suppose we demand a causal connection to things that we claim to know. Then it is not clear how this is supposed to work in the case of numbers that are acasual. |
