Last quote by Annette van der Hoek

Even though zero popped up in different places in different forms, Indians are credited to have given zero to the world. But zero did not appear all of a sudden. We find the cultural notion of zero-ness or emptiness in philosophy, arts and the architecture much earlier. We want to trace its steps as far back as we can and look for the bridges between philosophy and mathematics. What was the philosophical mind-set that provided a fertile ground for such an invention?feedback
