Physicist Eugene Wigner argued that
the enormous usefulness of mathematics in the natural sciences is something bordering on the mysterious
there is no rational explanation for it
as it it indicated in his essay “The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics”. His words have been interpreted by many philosophers and physicists (Like Max Tegmark) as suggesting that the universe IS mathematics.
In this book*: “The Pythagorean World: Why Mathematics Is Unreasonably Effective In Physics”, the author indicates that Wigner’s view of mathematics is not as inclusive as Graham Priest’s, since it does not include paraconsistent logic (Priest is a philosopher who has worked extensively in this area).
But what does this exactly mean? What does it mean that Wigner did not include Paraconsistent logics in this view? Does it mean that he simply did not explicitly mention them in his essay?
