    I disagree, I think Maths is more pure than Philosophy :tongue:
    I dunno, the philosophy of maths is purer than mathematical practice as far as i can see it. Depends how you consider purity et cetera ad infinitum...

    My brains too fuzzy tonight to argue the finer points :o: .

    I'm still on for mathematical practice being more pure than the philosophy of maths. Let us first define purity: *brain cries*

    I'm not well versed in the philosophy of maths, i usually dabble in metaphysics, ethics and more general epistemology.

    I would suppose a starting point would be how do you know the properties of numbers and systems that are defined (and 'proved') are absolute and true and arguably, is it possible to know.

    We can save this discussion for another day i think though :p: .

    Physics A-level is ****. Physics on the other hand is quite fun :awesome:

    Sidenote: I'm having a massive geometry fail; I can't prove that \pi is constant, or in other words, every circle has an equal ratio between it's diameter and it's circumference, or in other words, the laws of similar shapes. :sigh:

    :tongue: I far from claim myself to be a philosopher, and I've never really looked into any formalities of philosophies (nonetheless, I think it's interesting).

    A starting point for the argument of philosophy versus mathematics? I think a better starting point would be to define what we want, i.e. purity, as aforementioned, and then seek it out within the respective disciplines. But anyway. :tongue:
