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 Reason.

Advancements and Unsolved Problems in Physics Summary Suggested Edit[edit]

I think there should be a mention of the fact that the Large Hadron Collider's efforts to find evidence of higher-dimensional particles predicted by Grand Unified Theories (GUT), string theory, Theories of Everything, and supersymmetry have failed and not produced any evidence. The conflict between theory and observation should be mentioned in the summary on advancements and unsolved problems.
