The 16 papers here collected put forward meticulous, comprehensive, and technically deft challenges, defences and developments of one of the most widely discussed research programmes in the philosophy of mathematics. In light of the continuing interest in abstractionism, this collection of papers, none of which has been previously published, must be one which anyone with a serious interest in the subject will wish to consult.The papers divide into...
