Where does math come from?

Here is a link to a talk given by Dusty Wilson of Highline College. Dusty gave a great presentation at the recent ACMS Conference on “A Triune Philosophy of Mathematics” (that I hope to cajole him into sharing here). This is a longer version of that talk given to a secular audience. Description of the talk:

Presented by Dusty Wilson. What is mathematics and is it discovered or invented? The Humanist, Platonist, and Foundationalist each provide answers. But are the options within the philosophy of mathematics so limited? This talk will provide a historical/philosophical overview, introduce an inclusive framework, and perhaps connect it to our critical work as community college educators.
