 SCIENTIFIC COUNTERREVOLUTION IN MATHEMATICS (Site not responding. Last check: 20071010) 
  – as Vladimir Arnold writes, in particular,  the possessing a large influence mafia of "lefthemispheric mathematicians" has managed to eliminate the geometry from the mathematical education (at first in France, and then also in other countries), by replacing all informal part of this discipline by training in a formal manipulation by abstract concepts... 
  Therefore to object to natural rushing of mathematics to the maximal common, abstracttheoretical description "of an objective reality" means, using a known comparison of D.Hilbert, "to take away a telescope from an astronomer or to prohibit to the boxers to use their fists". 
  Nevertheless, certainly it is difficult to argue with Arnold and many other mathematicians, who consider that superabstractionism ("bourbakism", in Arnold's terms) of modern mathematics has led to that that two mathematicians working in neighbor rooms, can not already understand each other.
