    "Best" is a subjective term... there seems to be some obvious hits using google, have you tried that? Do you have some particular thing your looking for (history of philosophy of mathematics? modern understanding of the philosophy of mathematics? How mathematics relates to other subjects?) Giving more context would be helpful. Aug 3, 2015 at 18:32
