Math / Art / Learning

I always found the three subjects—music, poetry, and mathematics—very similar. In fact, I find that I think about them all in very similar ways. In school, mathematics is generally grouped in the ‘science’ category. But for mathematicians, mathematics—like music, poetry, or painting—is a creative art. All these arts involve—and indeed require—a certain creative fire. They all strive to express truths that cannot be expressed in ordinary everyday language. And they all strive towards beauty—Manjul Bhargava
