Science in Recent Philosophies and Histories

Since almost the beginning of written history, at least a relation between mathematical and scientific patterns and the course of human history has been evidenced by the field’s most prolific writers.

Since almost the beginning of written history, at least a relation between mathematical and scientific patterns and the course of human history has been evidenced by the field’s most prolific writers. Charting the rigorous intersection between such scientific fields and the study of philosophy should be no easy task: the overlap is considerable in the pre-modern and modern periods. Here is a brief sketch of the individuals who I have found particularly compelling with respect to such thought, and note that I have been hard-pressed to find the time to read even these scholars, let alone those who have fallen more severely through the cracks.

This study was prepared in February 2021 for private exchange as part of ongoing independent research in the fields of mathematical logic and history.
