Paul Ernest’s name is ubiquitous in the philosophy of mathematics . This festschrift is a celebration of a scholar in honour of his 65th birthday.

Paul Ernest’s name is ubiquitous in the philosophy of mathematics education and social constructivism as a philosophy of mathematics.

Much reference has been made to Paul Ernest’s ‘philosophy of mathematics education’ to legitimise a strong fallibilist trend in mathematics education. This article presents the argument that: (1) This philosophy makes unwarranted assumptions that have been taken as ‘given’. For example, that ‘absolutist’ or ‘Platonist’ views of mathematics necessarily imply the transmission model of teaching mathematics

Paul Ernest's name is synonymous with social constructivism as a philosophy of mathematics. His contributions to mathematics education have occurred at a very fundamental level and to a extent shaped theory development in this field. His research addresses fundamental questions about the nature of mathematics and how it relates to teaching, learning and society. For the last three decades Paul has been a prolific scholar who has published in a wide array of topics such as the relationship between the philosophy of mathematics and mathematics education, and more generally the philosophy of mathematics education, ethics and values in mathematics education, and the philosophy of research methodology. The title of this Festschrift is meant to be a pun to convey the sometimes relativistic dimension to mathematical certainty that Paul argued for in developing his philosophy, and also a play on words for the fact that absolute earnestness may perhaps be a Platonic construct, and not possible in the realm of language and human discourse! Paul Ernest's scholarly evolution and life can best be summarized in the words of Walt Whitman Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself (I am large, I contain multitudes). Indeed his presence has been large and multitudinous and this Festschrift celebrates his 65th Birthday with numerous contributions coming from the mathematics, philosophy and mathematics education communities around the world.
