**General information**

*New Waves in
Philosophy of Mathematics *is a collection of essays edited by Otávio Bueno (University of Miami) and Øystein Linnebo (University of Bristol). The
volume will be part of the series *New Waves in Philosophy*,
published by Palgrave Macmillan
under the general editorship of Vincent
Hendricks and Duncan
Pritchard.

The
aim of the volume is to give promising younger researchers in the philosophy of
mathematics a chance to stir up some new ideas. The contributors are invited to write on what
they take to be the right philosophical account of mathematics, examining along
the way where they think the philosophy of mathematics is and ought to be
going.
