>>>"What is our most successful science? I dare say it is physics. And why is physics so successful? Because, by the time we started to tackle it seriously, a very effective language already existed in which to express its theories. That language is called mathematics."

Your point is completely clear to me, and I agree with it. But while numbers, theorems, formulas etc. comprise the 'mathematical language,' and are therefore building blocks of other sciences, Mathematics itself is a science; its lexicon is applicable in other sciences, and so I think you're confusing mathematical utensils with Mathematics itself.


I thought you knew more about these things than I do! :)
