The emphasis on this book is on the history as opposed to the mathematics of the history of mathematics | Jumping from one place to another without saying absolutely nothing |

My expectations were betrayed, but maybe it's my fault so let's go back to the description from amazon | The book illuminates some of the varied contexts in which people have learned, used, and handed on mathematics, drawing on fascinating case studies from a range of times and places, including early imperial China, the medieval Islamic world, and nineteenth-century Britain |

- من الذي اخترع الرياضيات
- Namely, the myths of "ivory tower history" that singular genius accomplishes mathematical insight at a stroke, "stepping stone history" that in addition to social isolation that mathematics happens in a virtual socio-historical vacuum of sorts, and the "elite history" where the cutting edge research mathematics is valued over the everyday sort of mathematics
- من هو مخترع الرياضيات
- ", but it's only one sentence, surely it can't describe the whole book
- مخترع علم الجبر
- As someone quite familiar with the history of major mathematical ideas, this was quite refreshing
