ab: Publisher’s description: This survey provides a brief and selective
overview of research in the philosophy of mathematics education. It
asks what makes up the philosophy of mathematics education, what it
means, what questions it asks and answers, and what is its overall
importance and use? It provides overviews of critical mathematics
education, and the most relevant modern movements in the philosophy of
mathematics. A case study is provided of an emerging research tradition
in one country. This is the Hermeneutic strand of research in the
philosophy of mathematics education in Brazil. This illustrates one
orientation towards research inquiry in the philosophy of mathematics
education. It is part of a broader practice of ‘philosophical
archaeology’: the uncovering of hidden assumptions and buried
ideologies within the concepts and methods of research and practice in
mathematics education. An extensive bibliography is also included.
