“Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects the active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality. Though different traditions may emphasize different aspects, it is only the interplay of these antithetic forces and the struggle for their synthesis that constitute the life, usefulness, and supreme value of mathematical science.”
Richard Courant, What Is Mathematics?: An Elementary Approach to Ideas and Methods

“If the sweat and blood of all faiths seeped into the same soil, then a synthesis must take root”
Shahrukh Husain, A Restless Wind

“The being of any group from the point of view of the group members themselves is very curious. If I think of you and him as together with me, and others again as not with me, I have already formed two rudimentary syntheses, namely, We and Them. However, this private act of synthesis is not in itself a group. In order that We come into being as a group, it is necessary not only that I regard, let us say, you and him and me as We, but that you and he also think of us as We. I shall call such an act of experiencing a number of persons as a single collectivity, an act of rudimentary group synthesis.”
R. D. Laing

Numa Denis Fustel De Coulanges
“Il faut toute une vide d'analyse pour une heure de synthèse”
Numa Denis Fustel De Coulanges
