    Nominalism, in turn, faces the difficulty of having to explain the successful use of mathematics in scientific theorizing. Since, according to the nominalist, mathematical objects do not exist—or, at least, are not taken to exist—it becomes unclear how referring to such entities can contribute to the empirical success of scientific theories. The philosophy of mathematics is the branch of philosophy that studies the assumptions, foundations, and implications of aims to understand the nature and methods of mathematics, and finding out the place of mathematics in people's lives. The logical and structural nature of mathematics itself makes this study both broad and unique among its philosophical counterparts.

    The Elements (Ancient Greek: Στοιχεῖα Stoicheia) is a mathematical treatise consisting of 13 books attributed to the ancient Greek mathematician Euclid in Alexandria, Ptolemaic Egypt c. BC. It is a collection of definitions, postulates, propositions (theorems and constructions), and mathematical proofs of the books cover plane and solid Euclidean geometry Language: Ancient Greek. The heart of the Tractatus is Wittgenstein’s theory of propositions; and the heart of his theory of propositions is his theory of elementary propositions. Beginning in x, Wittgenstein turns to this topic. Elementary propositions and states of a airs () . However, strictly speaking, the analysis leaves open the possibility that that-clauses designate propositions by virtue of the combined workings of the complementizer ‘that’ and the sentence immediately following it. A case in point is the propositionalist version of Donald Davidson's)() paratactic theory of indirect speech reports.
