This booklet relies on premises: one can't comprehend philosophy of arithmetic with no realizing arithmetic and one can't comprehend arithmetic without doing arithmetic. It attracts readers into philosophy of arithmetic by means of having them do arithmetic. It deals 298 workouts, masking philosophically vital fabric, offered in a philosophically knowledgeable approach. The workouts supply readers possibilities to recreate a few arithmetic that would remove darkness from vital readings in philosophy of mathematics. subject matters contain primitive recursive mathematics, Peano mathematics, Gödel's theorems, interpretability, the hierarchy of units, Frege mathematics and intuitionist sentential common sense. The publication is meant for readers who comprehend uncomplicated houses of the typical and real numbers and feature a few heritage in formal logic.
