Abstract [en]

This paper poses two questions:

  1. Should mathematics textbooks try to convey the beauty of mathematics?
  2. If so, how?

These questions are difficult, and subjective, and will not be settled in this paper, but the purpose in raising them is to discuss if we agree that the answer to (1) is yes, then how can we make progress on question (2).
