I know that studying the evolution and history of a certain subject is a way of resolving the complexity of that subject. So I want to ask about references that describe the history and evolution of the foundation of mathematics as well as its philosophy and milestones of each part. For example, set-theory may be naive of axiomatic; and axiomatic have many versions. Each version is sufficient for explaining certain branch in mathematics. I want another reference emphasizing the application of each version in mathematics itself.
Some references :
Morris Kline, Mathematics: The Loss of Certainty (1982)
Marcus Giaquinto, The Search for Certainty : A Philosophical Account of Foundations of Mathematics (2002)
José Ferreiròs, Labyrinth of Thought: A History of Set Theory and Its Role in Modern Mathematics (1999)
I recently read a scholarly book relevant to this question.
Jeremy Gray, Plato's Ghost: The Modernist Transformation of Mathematics
The transformation in question goes from 1880 to 1910 (roughly speaking). Gray discusses how mathematics was done before, the turmoil surrounding the change, and how it was done after.
Recommended. But not for the faint of heart.
