A science is characterized by its devotion to the discovery and organization of general truths and its concern for the operation and application of general laws. In this sense we shall claim that mathematics is a science, for the very heart of the subject is the establishment of orderly procedures and the study of logical implications of statements... Moreover, mathematics governs the employment of scientific principles and thus becomes the organizer of science.

William Berlinghoff

1968, p. 1
