The Bourbaki style VS the organic style

  1. Dec 1, 2013 #1
    I know there are a lot of professional mathematicians on this forum,and I'd like to know where everybody stands on the Bourbaki matter(their methods) ,does anybody (who knows a lot of math) agree(as I do),with what the illustrious mathematician V.I Arnold says here http://www.math.ru.nl/~mueger/arnold.pdf or here http://pauli.uni-muenster.de/~munsteg/arnold.html ?.Who would classify himself as a left-brained or right-brained mathematicians ?And finally does anyone know any other mathematician and textbook writer who resembles V.I Arnlod in his so called ''organic'' style?
    Induction or deduction?
