“Where Does Math Come From?” presented by Dusty Wilson (Mathematics)

What is mathematics and is it discovered or invented?  The Humanist, Platonist, and Foundationalist each provide answers.  But are the options within the philosophy of mathematics so limited?  This talk will provide a historical/philosophical overview, introduce an inclusive framework, and perhaps connect it to our critical work as community college educators.

Location: Building 3, room 102

Science Seminar is a weekly set of presentations by Highline faculty about an area in their field of expertise. Designed to illustrate the cutting edge of science, technology and medicine for a general audience, the series is open to the public but also can be taken for college credit. In some cases faculty from outside the sciences illustrate how science and technology impact their field.
