CfP special issue of Synthese on "Mathematical Cognition & Enculturation"

Deadline: Thursday 1 February 2018

A CfP is out for the upcoming Synthese Special Issue "Mathematical Cognition and Enculturation", edited by Catarina Dutilh Novaes and Markus Pantsar.

With this special issue, we hope to advance our understanding of mathematical cognition by exploring the perspective of enculturation. Conversely, we also hope to investigate the merits, reach and limits of the enculturation perspective by means of detailed analyses of a specific but important case study: mathematical cognition. Submissions are invited from a wide variety of approaches in philosophy of mathematics, including views critical of the concept of enculturation with respect to mathematics.
