Abstract

In this paper, we present a paradigm for the philosopher of mathematics who takes mathematical practice seriously: Empirical Philosophy of Mathematics. In this philosophical paradigm, we use empirical methods (from sociology, psychology, cognitive science, didactics) to evaluate empirical questions connected to or derived from philosophical positions about mathematics. The paper presents a concrete case study.
