Philosophical aspects of logic and foundations
Several results in mathematical logic point out and explain the limitations, possibilities and advantages of formalization (the use of formal languages). An increasing precision in determining of the role of formal languages is basic to a critical attitude in philosophy of mathematics, spotting untenable positions and supporting others. An empiricist point of view is being developed that overcomes the vagueness and difficulties of know presentations.
This type of research has developed, and will continue to support, competences on the following themes: Mathematical logic; Understanding, acquiring, and constructing basic mathematical notion, in particular the primitive ones; The role of logic in the construction and acquisition of mathematical notions; The role of the language in mathematics; The role of formalism in mathematics; Mathematics teacher’s initial and life long education; Mathematical motivations for the teaching of mathematics.
