This booklet gathers the lawsuits of the convention "Cultures of arithmetic and Logic," held in Guangzhou, China. the development used to be the 3rd in a sequence of interdisciplinary, foreign meetings emphasizing the cultural parts of philosophy of arithmetic and common sense. It introduced jointly researchers from many disciplines whose paintings sheds new gentle at the range of mathematical and logical cultures and practices. during this context, the cultural variety should be diachronical (different cultures in several old periods), geographical (different cultures in several regions), or sociological in nature.

But are all of the items listed as part of this “gamut of approaches” really approaches to philosophy of mathematics? In Van Bendegem’s list of approaches for philosophy of mathematical practice, five of the eight items are not, strictly speaking, approaches ‘in the philosophy of mathematical practice’ [. . ] They are, rather, five non-philosophical perspectives on mathematical practice that are used by philosophers of mathematical practice or, more prudently, on which some philosophers of mathematical practice can find relevant to rely.

197) We believe that the choice of terms empirical philosophy and experimental philosophy is infelicitous. , Kitcher and Aspray (1988) mention “large disagreements among the members of this group” and Ferreirós (2014) emphasizes that “there are quite different ways of articulating [these tenets]”. 9 Cf. also (Prinz, 2008, p. 200): “This distinction between experimental and empirical philosophy is very rough. . ” 34 B. Löwe are taken into account, then there is a second methodological question of which empirical techniques are being used to collect this empirical data; and finally, there is the Prinzian question of whether the philosopher who asks the question is doing this empirical work himself or herself or “works by citation”.
