“What Is The Companion?
Bertrand Russell, in his book The Principles of Mathematics,
proposes the following as a definition of pure
mathematics.
Pure Mathematics is the class of all propositions of
the form “p implies q,” where p and q are propositions
containing one or more variables, the same in
the two propositions, and neither p nor q contains any
constants except logical constants. And logical constants
are all notions definable in terms of the following:
Implication, the relation of a term to a class
of which it is a member, the notion of such that, the
notion of relation, and such further notions as may be
involved in the general notion of propositions of the
above form. In addition to these, mathematics uses a
notion which is not a constituent of the propositions
which it considers, namely the notion of truth.”
