    Generosity: No Doubt, but at Times Excessive and Delusive. [REVIEW]Jens Høyrup - 2007 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 35 (5-6):469-485.
    One of the ways in which the artificial languages of mathematics are “generous”, that is, in which they assists the advance of thought, is through its establishment of advanced operatory structures that permit an even further advance of intuition. However, this generosity may be delusive, suggest ideas which in the longer run turn out to be untenable. The paper analyses two cases of “honest generosity”, namely a “proof” of the sign rule “less times less makes plus” from the 1340s and (...)
