Mathematics is often applied when someone wants to be absolutely certain. But mathematics can also deceive if applied in domains where it does not belong. What is mathematics? What is it to calculate? What is mathematical judgment? How certain is mathematics? And what about mathematics in the science and religion dialogue? This course explores some of the key issues in the philosophy of mathematics.
