### Famous quotes containing the word mathematics:

“*Mathematics* alone make us feel the limits of our intelligence. For we can always suppose in the case of an experiment that it is inexplicable because we don’t happen to have all the data. In *mathematics* we have all the data ... and yet we don’t understand. We always come back to the contemplation of our human wretchedness. What force is in relation to our will, the impenetrable opacity of *mathematics* is in relation to our intelligence.”

—Simone Weil (1909–1943)

“The three main medieval points of view regarding universals are designated by historians as realism, conceptualism, and nominalism. Essentially these same three doctrines reappear in twentieth-century surveys of the philosophy of *mathematics* under the new names logicism, intuitionism, and formalism.”

—Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)
