Now this is potentially very cool

From The n-Category Cafe, a link to what looks like a very cool paper. At least the first page caught my attention.

Mathematical knowledge: internal, social and cultural aspects

The author (Yu. I. Manin) describes the paper as follows: "I discuss some general aspects of the creation, interpretation, and reception of mathematics as a part of civilization and culture."
