Epistemology. Conventionalism was adopted by logical positivists, chiefly A. Ayer and Carl Hempel, and extended to both mathematics and deny rationalism, Ayer sees two options for empiricism regarding the necessity of the truth of formal logic (and mathematics): 1) deny that they actually are necessary, and then account for why they only.
