I find this couplet really interesting:
Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things
Poetry is the art of giving different names to the same thing
The first one is made from Poincaré, the second one is a quick response of an unknown poet to that mot. Besides being a counterpoint of each other, do they represent anything in philosophy? In particular, is the first one talking about logocentricism (there exists a signified that you can grasp), and the second one is deconstructionism (there is no signified to expect to grasp it at all)?
