Mathematics is one, and possibly the only, human endeavor for which there is a widely, if not universally, recognized criterion with which to determine truth. For this reason, mathematicians can avoid some of the interminable disputes which plague other fields. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder whether the most interesting questions are not those for which such disputes are inevitable.
