> Logic as a branch of mathematics most definitely requires axioms. --dawn
I'll posit that it doesn't; I would regard mathematics as a derivation of (wrong term, I know) logic. Logic is a system or metasystem of symbolic manipulation, and can be applied to many different "maths".
As I think of it, I'd say math has axioms and logic doesn't, and derives its power for precisely that reason; it can be applied to different sets of axioms. At least that's how I've always thought of it... I could be dead wrong, and would expect this to be contested.
