Portrait of George Santayana

George Santayana

1863–1952

Spanish philosopher

If all art aspires to the condition of music, all the sciences aspire to the condition of mathematics.

TOPICS: art, science, music

It is a pleasant surprise to [the mathematician] and an added problem if he finds that the arts can use his calculations, or that the senses can verify them, much as if a composer found that sailors could heave better when singing his songs.
