The aims of this journal are: to foster awareness of philosophical aspects of mathematics education and mathematics, understood broadly to include most theoretical reflection; to disseminate news of events and new thinking in these topics to interested persons; and to encourage informal communication, dialogue and international co-operation between teachers, scholars and others engaged in such research or thought.
This journal is the publication of the Philosophy of Mathematics Education Network which is a loose association of teachers and scholars with an interest in furthering the aims of the journal. The journal is supported by an international organising group of academics, who have been listed in earlier issues.
