Abstract

The paper aims to analyse the development of algebra and calculus during the Scientific Revolution. It will argue that the introduction of algebra into the learning world was never smooth but invited struggle with traditional geometry, which is well illustrated in the development of calculus in the 17th century. The paper will also demonstrate that the invention and the acceptance of calculus had been influenced by the need of solving practical problems (e. g., motion) during the century.
