David Corfield discusses the philosophy of mathematics (Dec. 14) —

"It’s very tricky choosing a rich and interesting case study which is philosophically salient.

"We paused to consider the impact of a George Bellows fight scene. Martin said it has 'wall power.'

What does that phrase mean? 'How it holds the wall. How it feels when you're ten or 20 feet away from it. It really takes hold of the room.'"
