Special Issue of Axiomathes

Call for Papers: Special Issue Axiomathes
Disagreement in Mathematics
Guest Editors: 
Colin J. Rittberg (Amsterdam & Brussel) and Deniz Sarikaya(Hamburg)

This special issue explores disagreements in mathematical practices. Disagreements in mathematics have been primarily explored in connection to the foundational debates. Other instances of disagreement in mathematical practices, such as about which definitions are most suitable to capture a mathematical concept, who deserves credit for mathematical results, which inferential moves are permissible, ethical concerns, or which research programmes to pursue, have received much less attention in the philosophical literature. For the special issue we envision contributions that study these various forms of disagreement. To this end we invite philosophers, mathematicians, logicians, historians, mathematics educators and others to contribute to the proposed special issue.

Suitable topics of submissions include but are not limited to:
?        permissible inferences in mathematics
?        the epistemic status of mathematical results
?        the suitability of definitions
?        the value of research programmes
?        credit allocation for mathematical results
?        ethical concerns connected to mathematical research
?        the organisation of institutional structures
?        how is disagreement overcome in mathematical practices
?        the foundations of mathematics
?        mathematical pluralism
?        logical anti-exceptionalism

The deadline for submission is August 15th, 2021. Submissions will undergo  Axiomathes? standard double-blind refereeing procedure.
