Mathematical Philosophy, i.e. the application of mathematical methods in philosophy, is experiencing a tremendous boom in various areas of philosophy. Mathematical methods are now used not only in epistemology, the philosophy of language, the philosophy of science, and the philosophy of mathematics but also in ethics, political philosophy and even in the philosophy of religion.
