What is so philosophical about mathematics

"The book can be recommended to anyone who wants a lively, fluent, informative and thoughtful concept
Text on the philosophy of mathematics wants to bring to mind.
Renatus Ziegler, the three 5/2013

"... If you have addressed these questions, then I recommend the newly published, wonderful book Philosophy of Mathematics. ... It deals with basic questions of mathematics, for example in the first chapter with the
Essence of real numbers and is written in such clear language that this first chapter could well be covered in class. "

"Philosophy of mathematics deals with the fundamentals of mathematics. It has a long history that runs parallel to the development of mathematics and how it can hardly be represented in its entirety today. This book succeeds in attempting to do this anyway Most mathematics textbooks deal with the fundamentals of mathematics in their introductory chapters, the basic questions go far beyond analysis, artihmetics, set theory and logic.This makes a book like this all the more valuable for the young mathematician who is still looking for orientation and in questions about the fundamentals of mathematics perhaps a new look at mathematics beyond sub-areas. ... After reading this book one thing is certain: Philosophy of mathematics is the most beautiful thing in the world (besides studying mathematics) suitable companions for it. "

"Thomas Bedürftig and Roman Murawski give the reader an excellent insight into the way in which mathematics has developed in the course of its history, and how this science today answers many fundamental questions that probably every mathematician has already asked himself in his training ... With this book, the authors have shown me mathematics from a previously unknown perspective, for which I would like to express my thanks ! "

From a review of the 1st edition: "It is an excellent book that is also very useful as a reference work. The reviewer can confess that he has learned a lot in facts, but also in contexts. The book is therefore for all mathematicians , especially recommended for math didactics and mathematics teachers for reading. It should be in the university library and in the library of subject-related and subject-related didactic seminars. Reference is also made to the extensive bibliography, the list of persons and terms, as well as an appendix with short biographies of philosophers and logicians. This underscores the recommendation as a reference work. "
