It seems there is a strong parallelism between linguistic and philosophy in the Arts and maths and physics in the Sciences. More specifically a student who prefers liguistic over philosophy (in this example I like to exclude formal logic without the philosophical aspects as philosophy) will also prefer maths over physics. And vice versa. i.e. If philosophy over linguistics then physics over maths. The implication goes the other way as well. So linguistic in the Arts is to Maths in the sciences Philosophy in the Art is to Physics in the sciences Personally I find this relationship to be true as I prefer lingusitic over philosophy and maths over physics. I am more refering to maths as pure maths and physics as theoretical physics. What do you think?
