Aim of the Journal The aim is to foster awareness of philosophical aspects of mathematics education and mathematics, understood broadly to include most kinds of theoretical reflection and research in mathematics education; to freely disseminate new thinking and to encourage informal communication, dialogue and international co-operation between teachers, scholars and others engaged in such research and reflection.

Editorial policy. The editorial hand is used very lightly. This is an international unrefereed journal which aims to stimulate the sharing of ideas for no reason other than an interest in the ideas and love of discussion among its contributors and readers. Please send any items for inclusion to the editor as a virus-checked E-mail attachment. MS Word for Windows compatible formats (or HTML) preferred plus PDF versions please. Most items are welcome including papers, short contributions, letters, discussions, provocations, reactions, or reviews. Please use diagrams, figures and other inserted items sparingly because of file size.

Graduate students are warmly invited to submit coursework assignments and theses for inclusion in this journal, to make available otherwise inaccessible resources for the benefit of the research community in mathematics education and/or the philosophy of mathematics.
