Since a very long time ago, it’s taken for granted that when we talk about the mathematics, we evoke the certainty, precision, accuracy and so forth. Obviousness that has been well proved during a long record of the mathematics, going along with a civilization to another, while developing the culture and the thinking mode of each one of them accordingly. Therefore, the human being is curiously fascinated by the domination, more particularly; the scientists use the mathematics so as to provide an intrinsic description of the universe and why not making the related forecasts. It’s noteworthy that the obtained results from the application of the mathematics in the physical world are wonderful; nonetheless, the mathematics theories are separately developed from the real world. In this paper, we will emphasize on the review of the main station which have been marked through the history of the mathematics, especially the brilliant interventions of the philosopher mathematicians either on philosophical or mathematical fields.

Author Keywords: civilization, culture, mathematics, history of mathematics, mathematical theory, mathematician’s philosopher.

Abstract: (french)

Qui dit mathématique dit certitude, précision, exactitude etc. ceci est prouvé le long l’histoire des mathématiques partant de civilisation en civilisation en développant les cultures et les modes de pensées de chacune d’elles.de ce fait l’homme, en générale, est fasciné par l’explication et la domination; plus particulièrement les scientifiques qui utilisent les mathématiques pour donner une description intrinsèque du monde et pourquoi ne pas faire des prévisions. A savoir que les résultats qui se sont tirés des mathématiques dans leurs applications au monde physique sont extraordinaires ,néanmoins des théories mathématiques se développent indépendamment d’une description du monde ;c’est donc les grandes stations qui ont marqué l’histoire des mathématiques, qui sont mises en cause et qu’ on essaiera d’analyser selon la vision des philosophe mathématiciens qui ont marqué l’histoire des mathématiques par des brillantes interventions que ça soit dans le domaine mathématique ou philosophique.

Author Keywords: civilisation, culture, mathématique, histoire des mathématiques, théorie mathématiques, philosophe mathématiciens.
