Two, Three, Four and All That (MP3 download)

By Pat Corvini

 


Number, though ubiquitous, is widely misunderstood. Drawing on Objectivist epistemology, this course sheds new light on the subject by sketching a reduction of the key ideas behind the modern number system and by showing their connection to cognition in general.  Recognizing the objectivity of number provides a new framework for resolving historical and modern debates, and yields a heightened appreciation for the science of mathematics as a whole.

This course was recorded at the 2007 Objectivist Summer Conference in Telluride, CO.
