CALL FOR PROPOSALS: new book series in Philosophy of Mathematics and Physics (Pickering & Chatto)

Philosophy of Mathematics and Physics

 Series editors: Elaine Landry and Dean Rickles

 Recent years have seen a surge of interest in new topics discussed by 
philosophers of mathematics and physics, including issues relating to the 
way in which these intersect. Titles in this series will cover a range of 
exciting themes, including the applicability of mathematics; mathematical 
modelling; category theory; the nature of mathematical proofs; 
computability; climate physics; econophysics; quantum information; quantum 
gravity; time machines; singularities; and emergence.

 The editors of a new book series on issues in the philosophy of 
mathematics and physics are seeking proposals for monographs or edited 

 For more information please contact the editors (Prof. Landry for 
philosophy of mathematics proposals and Prof. Rickles for philosophy of 
physics proposals).

 For full details on how to submit a proposal, see:
