Indeed, the goal pursued by Ascher (1998, p.223), is: « to broaden the history of mathematics so that it acquires a multicultural and global perspective […], » The Ivorian philosopher is right, to a certain extent, to read in this destabilising shock the process of underdevelopment. As he puts it:
The process of underdevelopment resulting from this shock is experienced concretely by the populations concerned as a global crisis: socio-economic crisis (brutal exploitation, permanent unemployment, accelerated and painful exodus), but also socio-cultural and civilization crisis translating a socio-historical unpreparedness and a maladjustment of human cultures and behaviors to the forms of life imposed by the foreign technologies.
Diakité (1985, p.105)
