During the last decades, historians of European early modern mathematics have adopted a rather broad view of what “mathematics” meant for the historical actors active during the so-called scientific revolution. In my paper I will discuss some results that have been achieved as a consequence of such a more historically motivated conception of mathematics. I will also indicate some open issues and suggest a few topics that need further study.
