A joke for mathematicians: On the Weyl schism

Raymond Chen

In one of my mathematics classes, the professor noted (and freely admitted that the joke was not original with him), “There are essentially two groups of mathematicians: Those that have read Weyl and those that have not. And once you enter the first group, you will never be understood by anyone in the second group.”

I guess it’s only funny to mathematicians.
