Goldstein cleverly compares the objective of the so-called “formalist program” to find a master list of axioms, from which all of mathematics could be derived by rigid logical deduction, to a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, for the common good, by logical rules.

b) with a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, for the common good, to logical rules

A question based on idiomatic usage.

To compare to is to point out or imply resemblances between objects regarded as essentially of a different order;

To compare with is mainly to point out differences between objects regarded as essentially of the same order.

subjugated to is the correct idiom.

Here, we are comparing a program with a Communist takeover , so a different order objects are compared, hence compared to will be used.

a)to a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, for the common good, by logical rules IDIOM Error

b)with a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, for the common good, to logical rules IDIOM Error

c)to a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, for the common good, to logical rules

d)with a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, for the common good, by logical rules IDIOM Error

e)to a “Communist takeover of mathematics” in which individuality and intuition would be subjugated, in the common good, to logical rules --> Illogical meaning.

Hi, Can you please elaborate on option C's "by logical rules" is incorrect? I chose option C over A as I thought "by logical rules" is correct.

Thanks!
