    I would like to know, how mathematics evolved ? From where I can know the history of mathematics (authentic views with proofs) ?


    I wish to know every thing but time does not permit me to do so but I won't stop.
    I have good logical capacity and I wish to know the world by applying this.

    That is quite a tall order.

    Mathematics: from the birth of Numbers (Gullberg) is not a bad read in that regard.

    On the net try

    As is often the case with technical subjects we are presented with an unfortunate choice: an explanation that is accurate but incomprehensible, or comprehensible but wrong.

    Well mathematicsd really started when our neo-lithic ancestors started counting how many mamoths there where in the plains. Or how many deer they had killed that day. They had to have a way to "count". That's where it all started, although their numbers probably weren't "one, two, three".
