Citações George Temple

„For the great majority of mathematicians, mathematics is“

—  George Frederick James Temple

100 Years of Mathematics: a Personal Viewpoint (1981)
Contexto: For the great majority of mathematicians, mathematics is... a whole world of invention and discovery—an art. The construction of a new theorem, the intuition of some new principle, or the creation of a new branch of mathematics is the triumph of the creative imagination of the mathematician, which can be compared to that of a poet, the painter and the sculptor.

„The great advances in mathematics have not been made by logic but by creative imagination.“

—  George Frederick James Temple

100 Years of Mathematics: a Personal Viewpoint (1981)
Contexto: Logical analysis is indispensable for an examination of the strength of a mathematical structure, but it is useless for its conception and design. The great advances in mathematics have not been made by logic but by creative imagination.

„Only by a study of the development of mathematics can its contemporary significance be understood.“

—  George Frederick James Temple

100 Years of Mathematics: a Personal Viewpoint (1981)
Contexto: The professional mathematician can scarcely avoid specialization and needs to transcend his private interests and take a wide synoptic view of the whole landscape of contemporary mathematics. His scientific colleagues are continually seeking enlightenment on the relevance of mathematical abstractions. The undergraduate needs a guidebook to the topography of the immense and expanding world of mathematics. There seems to be only one way to satisfy these varied interests... a concise historical account of the main currents... Only by a study of the development of mathematics can its contemporary significance be understood.
