Humanism and Mathematics Education

The idea that teaching, learning, and creating mathematics issues from the same psyche as literature, aesthetics, and music has attracted, since 1986, a worldwide network of people who share this belief. The existence of the Humanistic Mathematics Network has encouraged individuals and groups to try new approaches to teaching, doing, and publishing.
