Do Mathematics really help us to think and open our minds?
Mathematics is a language as well as a means to develop creative ideas in a precise and understandable way. It can be an aid in understanding at least some aspects of any subject, from psychology to physics, but it has some limitations. For instance, every logical system is either inconsistent or incomplete (Kurt Goedel). Yet compared to most other languages it has the major advantages of precision and conciseness. It is the languge of science. Why? because science is about measuring things, and Math is a big help in getting that right. Wittgenstein believed that math was tautologous, and it may be, but so are most languages when one concerns oneself with definitions and tries to be accurate. It has been my lifelong comapnion, and i hope will continue to be as long as i can continue to pursue truth.
