The essence of this article is an attempt to answer the question of what mathematics really is. The manner of public perception of mathematics is significant for many reasons, especially those related to education and social issues. For many years, sociologists of mathematical education have emphasized that mathematics in school functions as a synonym for „an objective judge.” In this article I try to connect a specific set of social problems to the social nature of mathematics as a discipline. These problems are: the problem of women and ethnic minorities, the cultural alienation (and its importance) of many social groups, which is a result of the teaching of mathematics, the role of mathematics in the transmission of values and unequal distribution of power.
