ab: Summary: The contribution of visualisation to mathematics and to
mathematics education raises a number of questions of an
epistemological nature. This paper is a brief survey of the ways in
which visualisation is discussed in the literature on the philosophy of
mathematics. The survey is not exhaustive, but pays special attention
to the ways in which visualisation is thought to be useful to some
aspects of mathematical proof, in particular the ones connected with
explanation and justification.
