Pure maths is more important than applied maths.







Maths cannot be separated into pure and applied; all pure maths will eventually have applications.







Pure mathematics (without direct purpose of application) is a waste of time.







In our society of material transactions, there is no space for work/study without applicable results.







The pursuit of truth is sufficient justification for a lifetime of study without application.







Pleasure/ satisfaction is sufficient justification for a lifetime of study without application.







In a world with so much conflict and poverty that need addressing, pure maths is not a priority.







The importance of a mathematical theorem lies more in the significance of mathematical ideas that it connects than its practical consequences.
