Parsons, the whole story, at last

I have been blogging on and off for quite a while about Charles Parsons’s Mathematical Thought and Its Objects, latterly as we worked through the book in a reading group here. I’ve now had a chance to put together a revised (sometimes considerably revised) version of all those posts into a single document — over 50 pages, I’m afraid. You can download it here.

I’ve learnt quite a bit from the exercise. I’ll be very interested in any comments or reactions.

    It’s great that there is a work on the book as such. I have put this on my reading list, will comment on the context soon. Thanks for writing and posting it!
