Platonism and Euclidean Mathematical Objects

Assuming a Platonic understanding of mathematical entities is critical to understanding Euclid’s Elements. A Platonic view is by no means required to work through (most of) the proofs, but it is to understand the mathematical entities the proofs are discussing and manipulating through various means to reveal characteristics about and relationships amongst themselves; a strictly Platonic understanding will not necessarily help you come to the conclusion that any two sides of a triangle combined are greater than the third (Euclid, Elements, Proposition 20), but it will allow you to recognize that the triangle pictured on the page next to the proof is not truly a triangle in the Euclidean system, given the definitions Euclid provides, but a representation of one. 1,315 more words
