Abstract

According to Jens Høyrup, the propositions 1 to 10 of book 2 of Euclid’s Elements function as a critique of previous non-rigorous procedures of Old Babylonian mathematics. Høyrup’s remarks on his notion of critique are disseminated throughout his works. Here, we take them into account to make an integrated presentation of the notion of critique that also looks to reveal features left implicit in Høyrup’s account.
