Is calculus a British or a German discovery? Do we owe it to Isaac Newton (1642–1726/27) or too Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646–1716)? This was a major controversy to historians of mathematics. Still, it turns out that Leibniz considered himself a Slav and so calculus is even more universal than generally admitted.
