Please Don't Delete: Math Dialogues

A cycle of meetings to talk about moments in the history of mathematics and aspects of its method. With a style that is not necessarily technical, the aim is to highlight the cultural, aesthetic, creative, playful and didactic value of hypothetical-deductive thinking and the actuality of the landscapes it is able to draw.
