There's a great discussion of the implications of Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations for number theory in here. I really liked this as an introduction to the topic, less esoteric than a lot of the available texts. Since I never got past Algebra II and have never taken an actual philosophy course, this was important to me when I read it.
