Abstract

I enjoyed going through the special section on Mathematics1. For obvious reasons I could especially empathize with the views expressed by Desiraju and Nanjundiah. What surprised me, however, was that none of the authors has even marginally referred to the view that ‘by giving so much emphasis on mathematics, science seems to be losing sight of the wider context of its vision’2. Perhaps this only reflects the extent of David Bohm’s fall from grace!
