Revisiting Hardy’s “Apology”: an interdisciplinary rendezvous between mathematics, literature and literacy

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapport/proceedingKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review

Mathematics often plays a role of a supporting discipline in interdisciplinary collaborations with science and social science. The question is if collaborations with the Arts may offer other roles or have the potentials to unfold other aspects of the discipline? This paper takes G. H. Hardy’s aesthetic arguments for the value of pure mathematics (Hardy, 1940) as the textual basis of an interdisciplinary collaboration between the subjects of Mathematics and Danish (i.e. Language 1). Through the perspective of literacy, it points out didactic potentials in an interdisciplinary approach to beauty and aesthetics within the context of mid-20th century ways of thinking and understanding mathematics and literature.
