The mathematics and philosophy combined major integrates the tools, concepts, and skills of mathematics and philosophy. This major explores the philosophical foundations of mathematics, including questions about the nature of mathematical knowledge and the status of the axioms of mathematics and probability theory, while also applying key tools from mathematics to philosophical problems such as those that arise in evolutionary game theory, philosophy of economics, and philosophy of science.
