Title A Cultural History of Mathematics in the 18th Century Media name/outlet Einstein Forum, Potsdam Media type Other Date 13/06/19 Description In the 18th century, the field of mathematics underwent profound changes. Nowhere is this more evident than in the algebraic foundation of differential calculus and its emergence as the leading mathematical discipline of the time. These and other developments propelled mathematics into new areas of application in the natural sciences and in technology—and into the public imagination more generally, as advanced mathematical concepts found their way into school curricula, philosophy, art, and literature. This symposium examines the multifarious ways in which mathematics shaped the cultural history of the era.
