In the catalog issue of the Bulletin of Florida State University, to be published sometime during 1950, will appear a challenging innovation: the General Education course in mathematics, titled mathematics 105, will be listed under the general area of Communication through Language. This, so far as the writer is able to ascertain, will be the first time a course in mathematics has been so listed in any university catalog. It will be the purpose of this paper to examine some aspects of the historical development of mathematics to justify such a classification and to explore some of the implications of such an approach for the teaching of mathematics.
