ABSTRACT. Avigad writes that mathematical objects like numbers and sets are archetypical examples of abstracta. Putnam remarks that mathematical knowledge resembles empirical knowledge. Gaifman outlines a project in the philosophy of mathematics based on a proposed view of the nature of mathematical reasoning. Fraenkel notices that a definition of set is called impredicative if it contains a reference to a totality to which the set itself belongs.
