- ------------------------------------
As far I remember, attitudes have been displayed throughout of history of Math. or any science for that matter. Most discoveries, rather math.or other sciences
were done in secrets, there were tragedies, mental institute,
deaths, fights, disputes and dirty politics and all involved.
Math, or any science was never build on a collective mind
but rather by a individual mind.
Einstein, Tesla,Faraday, and mostly all these great individuals Newton, WERE NEVER WORKING IN A COLLECTIVE SETTING.
Again some left wing propaganda, promoting collective thinking, hey guys I come from the eastern block and believe me "collective anything" is not working.
The western world prospered because the individualism was promoted, the socialism dissolved because, individualism was demoted.
