Broadly speaking, **pure mathematics** is mathematics motivated entirely for reasons other than application. From the eighteenth century onwards, this was a recognised category of mathematical activity, sometimes characterised as *speculative mathematics*, and at variance with the trend towards meeting the needs of navigation, astronomy, physics, engineering and so on.
