The Mathematical Experience () is a book by Philip J. Davis and Reuben Hersh that discusses the practice of modern mathematics from a historical and philosophical perspective.

The book discusses the psychology of mathematicians, and gives examples of famous proofs and outstanding problems. It goes on to speculate about what a proof really means, in relationship to actual truth.

Experiencing Mathematics: What Do We Do, When We Do Mathematics. His book with Philip Davis, The Mathematical Experience, won the National Book Award in science. Hersh is emeritus professor of mathematics at the University of New Mexico.

InThe American Mathematical Society published a book that presents to the world Hersh’s oeuvre, a collection of most of his articles, essays, and book reviews that reflect his philosophy of mathematics.

Hersh once called this a humanistic philosophy, in some newer articles he prefers to call it a pragmatist philosophy. Dialogue, satire, and fantasy enliven the philosophical and methodological analysis. Reuben Hersh has written extensively on mathematics, often from the point of view of a philosopher of science.
