Page 15 - ... into the unsafe ground of set theory. This is our fate, to live with doubts, to pursue a subject whose absoluteness we are not certain of, in short to realize that the only "true" science is itself of the same mortal, perhaps empirical, nature as all other human undertakings.

Page 11 - Platonist] position is probably the one which most mathematicians would prefer to take. It is not until he becomes aware of some of the difficulties in set theory that he would even begin to question it. If these difficulties particularly upset him, he will rush to the shelter of Formalism, while his normal position will be somewhere between the two, trying to enjoy the best of two worlds.

Page 9 - The authors would like to acknowledge the support of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research through the program, "Theoretical and Experimental Studies of Vibroacoustic Systems", under the management of Major Brian Sanders. 1. Clark, RL and Fuller, CR, "Optimal placement of piezoelectric actuators and polyvinylidene fluoride error sensors in active structural acoustic control approaches,

Page 11 - To the average mathematician who merely wants to know his work is securely based, the most appealing choice is to avoid difficulties by means of Hubert's program. Here one regards mathematics as a formal game and one is only concerned with the question of consistency. . . . The Realist ] Platonist] position is probably the one which most mathematicians would prefer to take.
