Pease, Alison Imre Lakatos shows that mathematics grows through a process of the successive improvement of creative hypotheses by attempts to 'prove' them and by criticism of these attempts: the logic of proofs and refutations.

', ‘How is mathematics really done, and - once done - how should it be presented? Here is a short summary: In spite of the central role played by the notions of falsity and refutation, as of today there is no agreement on which should be their correct understanding in logic. Something went wrong. Lakatos shows that mathematics grows through a process of improvement by attempts at proofs and critiques of these attempts, and his work continues to inspire mathematicians and philosophers aspiring to develop a philosophy of mathematics that accounts for both the static and the dynamic complexity of mathematical practice.
