About the Author

Simon Duffy is a Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Sydney, Australia. He is the author of The Logic of Expression: Quality, Quantity and Intensity in Spinoza, Hegel and Deleuze (Ashgate, 2006) and editor of Virtual Mathematics: The Logic of Difference (Clinamen Press, 2006). Albert Lautman (1908-1944) was a French mathematical philosopher. An escaped prisoner-of-war, he was killed by the Nazis in Toulouse in 1944. His work in the philosophy of mathematics has since had a profound influence on modern European philosophy, in particular the work of Gilles Deleuze and Alain Badiou.


Reading Lautman can help us enrich our picture of the development of the field and take into consideration an option quite different from the received view.
