    See http://www.edshare.soton.ac.uk/4068/...o_research.pdf Page 61

    Which links to http://www.vtstutorials.co.uk/ws//tr...0-6ac5081defcd

    Also you might be better off looking for philosophy resources: http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/ph...y-mathematics/ and http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/dedekind-foundations/

    No worries! I think that book is quite advanced as it is aimed at undergraduates and is mostly mathematical. I have extracted a few pages from a reference book that might help you with your project. There are also references to the books for further reading mentioned at the end.
