About DMRCP.

The CIPSH Chair DMRCP is a research network working on the diversity of mathematical research cultures and practices. It aims to understand mathematics as a human discipline driven by interaction, encompassing all its philosophical, sociological, cognitive, historical, and didactical aspects in contrast to the image of mathematics as a cerebral discipline performed by individuals in pensive isolation without social interaction.

DMRCP studies mathematical research cultures and practices using methods from the empirical social sciences and the humanities, with a particular focus on the effect that differences in research cultures and practices have on mathematics. In that, it relies on researchers from many disciplines and countries and understands itself as the coordinating infrastructure for this community.

DMRCP is chaired by Benedikt Löwe and governed by its Council consisting of sixteen experienced scholars of the field. Formally, the CIPSH Chair DMRCP is hosted by the Fakultät für Mathematik, Informatik und Naturwissenschaften der Universität Hamburg based on an agreement with the Conseil International de Philosophie et des Sciences Humaines (CIPSH).
