Growth Processes and Formal Logic. Comments on History and Mathematics Regarded as Combined Educational Tools
Seltman, Muriel; Seltman, P. E. J.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 9, 1, 15-29, Feb 78
The authors stress the importance of bringing together the causal logic of history and the formal logic of mathematics in order to humanize mathematics and make it more accessible. An example of such treatment is given in a discussion of the centrality of Euclid and the Euclidean system to mathematics development. (MN)
