ab: Summary: We are interested in Marc Barbut’s proposal to teach probability
calculus, starting not from the probability measure but from the
concept of expectation as a linear mapping. We recall the immediate
context of this thesis, that of teaching mathematics in sociology and
psychology (at the undergraduate level), and the broader context which
was the reform of “modern mathematics” launched by the Lichnerowicz
commission. Then we trace the various forms taken by this proposal in
three papers from the 1960s and another one from 2000.
