Question Description

4. Write a report, a literature review (@ 150 - 200 words), of the philosophical scene in your selected area using your best three articles. Discuss the philosophical scene as you can best ascertain it letting the three items be the representatives of the literature. Refer specifically to the items in your review by the author’s last name and the number in your bibliography of three.

5. Finally, Identify the article (from your little bibliography of three) that you have chosen to examine further for Research 5 and 6, upcoming. Identify by author, article title, journal source, volume, date, page, one more time. but this time display (1) the abstract underneath, and (2) the last paragraph of the article. Make sure the article is a philosophical treatment of a topic in the philosophy of “X”. Explain why you believe your search successfully retrieved a philosophy article, peer reviewed, etc. Discuss more fully the logic of the search for that selection.

An abstract?
An abstract is a summary of the article. it is about as long as a paragraph. It often is at the top of the article. The abstract is usually author supplied. Sometimes the database separates it out and you have to click on one of the additional links given with the article title. Not all articles, however, have abstracts.

Before giving up hope on finding an abstract for your selection. Try this: now that you have your selected article, found in the SMC database, etc. do an internet search with the author's name and article's title. Very often other subscription based databases themselves will provide an abstract for an article that doesn't have one. Your article will probably pop up on the internet in one of those special databases and it will have been provided with an abstract, just not author supplied. Look at a few and If there isn't one there, just say so.

You are trying to find out a little something about the article, and the abstract of an article can be very helpful, especially if you are doing extensive literature searches.

Here you go with the edits. Sorry for the mistake 😅

Hacking, Ian (2014). Why is There Philosophy of Mathematics at All?. Cambridge University Press.
In this article Hacking brings the discussion to light and creates a hecatomb on the importance or
validity of science. This article deals with a language that has been woven through the accuracy of
numbers and philosophical analysis. Brings the doubt and logic of Descartes to the numerical plane
where equations, theorems or any mathematical problem has a philosophical origin and a way to
understand it philosophically. Hacking describes the process in which mathematical reasoning is
approached by a deductive philosophy that leads us to the conclusion of what is sought.
Hacking proposes that one of the essential subjects in the book is the study of this relationship ...
