Aims and Scope
This book examines the role that numbers and reflection on mathematical subjects and truths has played and continues to play in philosophy as a whole. The evolution of the concept of number from natural numbers to real and the transfinite numbers of set theory is developed as a prototype of various Wittgensteinian "language games."
