At the joint AMS-MAA Mathematics Meetings in Laramie last summer, Saunders Mac Lane gave a splendid address on developments in geometry and topology during the 20th century. He stressed the value of an axiomatic approach in improving our understanding of mathematical phenomena, arguing that we understand such phenomena better when we approach them geometrically and set up the right axioms. He also invited his audience to consider whether the developments he cited constituted a revolution or were no more than a natural outgrowth of developments in the 19th century and earlier.
