The topic of this workshop is one of the objectives of our research project P12-HUM-1216 “La génesis del conocimiento matemático: cognición, historia y prácticas”. We aim to investigate the changing configuration of relations between pure and “applied” maths in different periods, with particular attention to the “classical” era (17th and 18th centuries) contrasted with the “modern” 19th and early 20th centuries.
