It serves as a good motivation for the nominalist philosophy of mathematics. But in the end it can lead to a serious challenge to the nominalist account of mathematical objectivity if some minimal assumptions about the relation between mathematical objectivity and logical objectivity are made. We consider three strategies the nominalist might take to meet this challenge, and we argue that all these strategies are untenable.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2022-10</dcterms:issued> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dcterms:title>Nominalism and Mathematical Objectivity</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Luo, Guanglong</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-11-11T14:46:17Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
