Mathematics is a special and abstract field with its particular challenges. What is the essence of mathematics and how we can communicate our mathematical experiences in the best way? For me it is about language and a diverse and appropriate use of metaphors and analogies. It is about empathy and the ability to change perspective, about precision and philosophical sensitivity. In this lecture, I will talk about my experiences in communicating mathematics, and complex topics, in a simple, accurate and understandable manner.
