Moreover, this evidence suggests that even highly educated adults routinely conceptualize the natural numbers in ways that are radically different from, or even at odds with, Peano-like characterizations. Among the positive claims they make is the one that the collection of counting numbers differs in important ways from the formal mathematical set of natural numbers. An important upshot of this analysis Francis is that natural number concepts may not arise naturally from our counting experience.

He first notes the existence of many reports about the role of beauty for finding truth in mathematics. For a long time, philosophical theorizing has dealt with the epistemic jus- tification of aesthetic factors. Yet, as Reber notes, empirical evidence, and a theory about the underlying mental mechanisms, are largely missing.

He discusses a particular theory, the processing fluency theory of aesthetic plea- sure, which claims that the ease with which information can be processed is the common mechanism underlying perceived beauty and judged truth. The chapter summarizes some of the existent philosophical discussion on this topic; after this, it introduces the assumptions of the processing flu- ency theory before reviewing the empirical evidence for this account.

Three major questions arise. Earlier analyses investigated the role of fluency in subjectively judged and objective truth, and they dealt with the evidence for the claim that familiarity with, and the coherence of, information results in fluency. These investigations also outlined the conditions under which fluency is epistemically justified—that is, related to actual truth.

Likewise, according to Reber, it seems plausible that the familiarity of mathematicians with their field, and the coherence of mathematical rules, results in fluency. Hence a positive relationship between beauty and truth is plausible. It fittingly closes the volume, as it deals with a key question for any naturalist-friendly philosophy—namely, how should we conceive of the very method of math- ematics if we take a naturalist stance?

Sterpetti indicates the origin of the problem: mathematical knowledge has long been considered to be the very paradigm of certain knowledge, and, as he also points out, this is so because Taylor mathematics is taken to be based on the axiomatic method. A source of additional problems is that natural science is thoroughly mathematized and thus accounting for the role of science and its relation to mathematics are crucial tasks in outlining any version of the naturalist perspective.

Sterpetti examines, and expresses doubts about, the idea to naturalize the traditional view of mathematics by relying on evolutionism. One interesting upshot is that we must then conceive of mathematical knowledge as plausible knowledge. Reasoning: Studies of human inference and its founda- tions.
