Philosofarian’s “Wit and Wisdom” and Clatsop Community College’s “Ales and Ideas” How Real is Math?

We tend to think of mathematical thinking as “logical” thinking – something that we arrive at through using proper and pure reasoning about the world. But there are intuitive and even mysterious sides to math too. Is logic the same as math, or is logic just the way the human mind gets to mathematical ideas?

And, if that’s the case, what exactly is “real” about math and what’s it’s connection to reality?
