Book Description:

"Brown argues that mathematics does not explain physical phenomena in the sense of accounting for them, but that it does explain them in the sense of making them comprehensible...this is a clear and engaging book, mainly for professional philosophers or graduate students in philosophy, that contains many on-target criticisms of naturalism." - A.C. Paseau, Wadham College, University of Oxford, UK in Philosophia Mathematica "Brown's book is a useful addition to recent debates in the philosophy of mathematics." - Christopher Pincock, The Ohio State University, US in Mind
