Mathematics Is A Science

From Mathematics Is A Science

...because it studies the universe.

The idea that mathematics is a science is meant to be a counterpoint of these statements very common among mathematicians:

  • "Mathematics is art."
  • "Mathematics is an art."
  • "Mathematics is an art form.", and so on.

Just because there is something artistic about it doesn't mean it's art. If making chairs could be done artistically then so could science.
