Philo sophy of mathematics has proved to be one of the m ost\n lively areas of philosophy in recent ti mes, and numerical\n cognition has proved the same with respect to cognitive\n science. Ma ny traditional issues in the philosophy of\n mathematics, concerning both our understanding of the concept of\n number and our conception of mathematical objects, has been seen\n in a n ew light under the pressure of the development of\ n cognitive studies. Often, however, we are f aced with the stark\n opposition between thos e who believe that cognitive results tell\n u s all there is to say about mathematics, pace most traditional\n philosophical concerns, and th ose who deny that cognitive\n aspects of math ematical thinking, however interesting they may\n be on their own, can foster any progress in t he solution of as\n yet theoretically unavoid able philosophical issues.\n

\n\ n Many, however, feel the urge of filling t he gap, one way or\n the other. Major and i nterrelated issues are indeed at\n stake. T his workshop aims at bringing together scholars on \n both sides of the divide, and to offer t he opportunity to\n young researchers of di scussing works at the interplay between\n c ognitive science and the philosophy of mathematics .\n

\nThe workshop Numerical Cog nition and Mathematical Ontology is\n one of the Workshop associated to the Seventh Conference in\n Analytic Philosophy (ECAP7).\n
