Re: FOM: Definition of mathematics



Jan:

Just because mathematics can be formuiated in terms of sets--say in
ZFC--that doesn't mean that it has to be so formulated.

I believe that Archimedes, Newton, and Euler--for examples--produced
mathematics.

Best wishes from Annapolis for a happy year 2000,

Sam Kutler
