This book discusses deep problems about our place in the world with a minimum of jargon. It argues that 'absolutist' ideas dating back to Plato continue to mislead generations of mathematicians, physicists, and theologians, and reveals the underlying reasons for the current conflicts between science and religion.

Josh Reeves, ESSSAT News 21.3 Davies has thought long and hard about the relationship of mathematics to the physical world, which gives him an interesting and even helpful perspective.

Colva Roney-Dougal, The London Mathematical Society Newsletter Although some of the ideas in the book are complex, the presentation is both lucid and entertaining. It has made me re-evaluate my own beliefs about the nature of mathematics. Davies raises more questions than answers, and I strongly recommend to you this thought-provoking book.

Manjit Kumar, New Scientist ... a wide-ranging, thought-provoking meditation.
