Description:
The author was invited to deliver a course of lectures before a club of graduate students of the University of Illinois on the subject of The Philosophy of Mathematics. The more difficult questions of mathematical philosophy had to be omitted. It tended to widen the field in the way of making it intelligible to all students of fair mathematical knowledge, which could be accomplished best by considering mathematics constantly in its historical development.
