From Weber to van der Waerden
This chapter includes a commentary on the opening chapter of Corry’s Modern algebra and the rise of mathematical structures, and more particularly his paper ‘From Algebra (1895) to Moderne Algebra (1930): Changing Conceptions of a Discipline. We also explore van der Waerden’s paper ‘On the sources of my book Moderne Algebra’.
