I invite you to join me in this new discussion group whose purpose is
to provide an electronic forum for the scholarly discussion of
Mathematics and Natural Philosophy from an Historical and
Philosophical viewpoint among serious students of these matters,
whether professional academics or independent scholars. It is formed
in frank imitation of the Historia Matematica list (whose scope was
always broadly conceived), and every attempt will be made to maintain
the high level of scholarly discussion we enjoyed there. I have
expanded the scope somewhat and perhaps this will be one of the first
topics of discussion. I also hope that a more "democratic" approach
to the management and direction of the group will begin a healthier
long-term community having more member participation.
