Mathematics - by mathematicians often called the ‘queen of the sciences’ - has not recently been a favourite subject for humanity students. Teachers of mathematics therefore welcome popularization of mathematics. History of mathematics, or rather stories about mathematicians and mathematics, are therefore used as a divertimento in mathematics lessons. However, is mathematics (and its history) indeed something that is not part of our lives?
The meeting traditionally strives to support interdisciplinary debate and explore various approaches to history of mathematics. We would like to offer a view of mathematics as an indispensable part of our culture.
