Philosophy section -- Mathematics as analytical[edit]

The philosophy section advocates an understanding of physics as synthetic and mathematics as analytical. The status of mathematics as analytical vs. synthetic is a core point of divergence in various philosophies of mathematics. Mathematics as synthetic is argued by numerous proponents, the most prolific being Immanuel Kant, as articulated in the introduction of the Critique of Pure gay


"Studies matter"[edit]

— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:48, 4 January 2019 (UTC) Physics studies everything, including the theoretical but likely constituent objects which compose spacetime itself, not just objects in spacetime. Spacetime waves prove a fabric like form of spacetime which substantiates string theory. -Inowen (nlfte) 03:41, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Typo in section 4[edit]

The first sentence in section 4, Relation to Other Fields, has an extra word. It reads, "Mathematics provides a compact and exact language used to describe of the order in nature."

If someone could remove that "of," that would be great.

Keep up the good work! (talk) 07:10, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

done; thanks--Qcomp (talk) 07:18, 25 September 2018 (UTC)

Observation as independent of observer for understanding physical states[edit]

We represent the universe/cosmos to ourselves via observation.. "Representationalism Apparitional" experiences appear prima facie more compatible with the philosophical theory of representationalism. According to this theory, the immediate objects of experience when we are perceiving the world normally are representations of the world, rather than the world itself. These representations have been variously called sense-data or images. In the case of an apparitional experience one might say that the subject is aware of sense-data or images which happen not to correspond to, or represent, the external world in the normal way. The philosophical implications of hallucinatory experiences in the sane are discussed by McCreery.[25] He argues that they provide empirical support for the theory of representationalism rather than direct realism.","Wikipedia" (talk) 20:18, 5 November 2018 (UTC)
