ab: Summary: An attempt is made to suggest some ultimate goals for education
beyond the narrow framework of the mathematics curriculum. In addition,
there is an attempt to link mathematics education to these goals by
pointing at some principles which direct mathematical behavior as well
as educated behavior. The main claim is that both mathematical behavior
and educated behavior are supposed to be directed by rational thinking.
