Gold, B. and R. A. Simons (2008). Proof and other dilemmas : mathematics and philosophy. [Washington, D.C.], Mathematical Association of America.
Sixteen original essays provide a sampler of current topics in the philosophy of mathematics, from the nature of mathematical objects (How can one tell when one mathematical object is really the same as another?) to the boundaries between mathematics and other disciplines (What does one relegate to "applied" mathematics?). The essays by a broad range of mathematicians and philosophers of mathematics offer the most recent thinking on emerging questions in mathematics and philosophy as well as on classical topics, from the problem of "What is mathematics?" to the nature of proof and probabilities. The material is accessible to anyone who has been thinking about or would like an introduction to the philosophy of mathematics.

Kaplan, R. and E. Kaplan Hidden harmonies : the lives and times of the Pythagorean theorem. New York, Bloomsbury Press.
A squared plus b squared equals c squared. It sounds simple, doesn't it? Yet this familiar expression is a gateway into the riotous garden of mathematics, and sends us on a journey of exploration in the company of two inspired guides, who trace the life of the Pythagorean theorem from ancient Babylon to the present, visiting along the way Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, President James Garfield, and the Freemasons--not to mention the elusive Pythagoras himself. Why does this theorem have more than two hundred proofs--or is it four thousand? And it has even more applications than proofs: Ancient Egyptians used it for surveying, and today astronomers call on it to measure the distance between stars. It works not just in two dimensions, but any number you like, up to infinity. And perhaps most intriguing of all, it opened the door to the world of irrational numbers.--From publisher description.
