I guesed no, because if they were, they probably wouldn't have required thinking.

I'm SO confused.

I like this...althoguht wouldn't it logically follow that mathmeticians are not mortals?

tonjawithaj: since the statements don't jive, i don't think you can logically conclude anything further unless you eliminate a statement. If statement 1 is true, then some mathmaticians are philosophers, all of whom are mortal. so some have to be mortal. depends on which of the 4 you eliminate...
