    Resumé

    Close analysis of Old Babylonian texts shows that they are not deprived of mathematical argument, but that this argument aims at creating understanding and conceptual coherence rather than being deductive in nature; however, the exts also reveal the presence of second-level "crituque" of techniques and concepts, though not in the central role it occupies in Greek mathematics
