  • But some books are above our levels..(definitely above MY level!!)Abstract. Mathematics shares with science the use of axiomatic reasoning. This sort of reasoning is crucial to the development of theory in that when consequences are proven mathematically to follow from a certain set of assumptions, this logic can be incorporated as a logico-deductive component of theory as contrasted to empirical tests of hypotheses. Stronger theories are often constructed by weakening the axiom sets to the point of greatest generality while still deriving theoretically important consequences.
