Article 1st Page PDF(Open Access) Edmund C.Berkeley as a Popularizer and an Educator of Computers and Symbolic Logic(pp.1-23) SUGIMOTO, Mai(杉本舞) Kansai University(関西大学) Abstract This paper explores how Edmund C.

Nishi and Choe designed the philosophical underpinning that allowed acceptance of modern Western … Continue reading

Activities of “the History of Mathematics Society of Japan (Nihon Sugakushi Gakkai)* Kazuo Shimodaira** [p.1] The History of Mathematics Society of Japan started, as the present writer reported previously in our joural***, for the purpose of researches in the history of mathematics in general, not confined in particular fields of mathematics.However, the members of Society are inclined to restrict their field to Japanese mathematics and concentrate their studies in the history of the traditional ones — WASAN****.
