Resumen

Este ensayo aborda una epistemología crítica de las matemáticas como investigación de las limitaciones epistémicas del pensamiento matemático. Tras argumentar a favor de la relevancia de una epistemología crítica de las matemáticas, discuto los supuestos subyacentes a la aritmética estándar y los supuestos subyacentes a la lógica estándar como ejemplos de tales limitaciones epistémicas del pensamiento matemático. Analizando el trabajo de estudiosos de la educación matemática interesados por la filosofía, como Alan Bishop y Ole Skovsmose, discuto algunas de las primeras ideas para una epistemología crítica de las matemáticas. Concluyo que estas ideas sólo pueden ser el principio, que aún estamos lejos de una comprensión adecuada de las limitaciones epistémicas de las matemáticas y que se necesita más investigación.
