Proofs and Refutations is essential reading for all those interested in the methodology, the philosophy and the history of mathematics. Imre Lakatos shows that mathematics grows through a process of the successive improvement of creative hypotheses by attempts to 'prove' them and by criticism of these attempts: the logic of proofs and refutations.
