"some people" :x

I will say no because philosophy requires subjective arguments with a subjective language. Mathematics transcends all of that. But incredible to note almost any philosopher worth his salt was also a mathematician!

philosophy's not really on the continuum - rather, it's more like the continuum's flip side.

... or something like that.

I'm going from philosophy into international relations and public policy, which is really applied sociology. I guess that puts me way at the bottom of the 'purity' scale.
