Why is this neededEdit

This seems to be a definition with little chance of developing into a mature article. Shouldn't this be [perhaps merged and] redirected to List of mathematical theories? - dcljr (talk) 04:27, 23 April 2017 (UTC) See theoretical physics. Ema--or (talk) 16:44, 20 February 2021 (UTC) Don't agree. have you seen the discussions below? Ema--or (talk) 22:38, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Important editEdit

Great article, explains how axioms vs arithmetic truths fall into the making of mathematical theory. But one of the statements near the end needs some work: “The singular accomplishment of axiomatic set theory is its ability to give a foundation for the derivation of the entirety of classical mathematics from a handful of axioms.” Mike24jd (talk) 09:13, 6 January 2022 (UTC)
