Program Description:

The main purpose of the Mathematics May Seminar is to witness the interplay of mathematics and Western culture, to see how each influences the other. For example, as we encounter different modern-day cultures, we hope to learn some of their assumptions on which these cultures are founded, and then to become aware of some of our assumptions when we react to the different cultures. This "axiomatic" type of approach is precisely the way in which mathematics has challenged every major division of learning. We experience a great deal of several human civilizations in the West--Classical Greek, Roman, the Renaissance, and the Enlightenment. If this seminar does no more than cause the participants to raise questions, it will still be a success.
