Volume: 17
Pages: 1-21

Publication Date: 2004
Edition Details: Volume title: New Questions and Approaches in the History of Mathematics, Part II: Modern Mathematics
Language: English

The present issue of Science in Context comprises a collection of articles dealing with various, specific aspects of the history of mathematics during the last third of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth. Like the September issue of 2003 of this journal (Vol. 16, no. 3), which was devoted to the history of ancient mathematics, this collection originated in the aftermath of a meeting held in Tel-Aviv and Jerusalem in May 2001, under the title: History of Mathematics in the Last 25 Years: New Departures, New Questions, New Ideas. Taken together, these two topical issues are meant as a token of appreciation for the work of Sabetai Unguru and his achievements in the history of mathematics.
