Is Mathematics Discovered Or Invented?
Submitted by Lance on Sun, 2008-04-27 00:56
Interesting article, and an interesting discussion at /.
"The language we use to describe mathematics is not the math itself. The math exists regardless of the symbolism used to describe it. Hence, you are incorrect. It is all discovered, but the means to describe it and put it to use is invented."
"Suppose you had a definitive, 100% guaranteed answer to the "discovered vs invented" question. What would it allow you to do that you couldn't do before? What could you predict? What would you gain?
Nothing, nothing and nothing.
It's meaningless; merely a matter of perception, wordplay and people having too much time on their hands.
Oh, and the correct answer is "discovered"."
