The Mathematical Intelligencer is a mathematical journal published by Springer Verlag that aims at a conversational and scholarly tone, rather than the technical and specialist tone more common amongst such journals.
The book Mathematical Conversations, published by Springer in 2000, selected twenty articles from 1980-2000 from the Mathematical Intelligencer, and organised them into seven parts:
1. Interviews and Reminiscences
2. Algebra and Number Theory
4. Applied Mathematics
5. Arrangements and Patterns
6. Geometry and Topology
7. History of Mathematics
The book appears to have been intended both as a collection of the best of what the journal has to offer for collectors, and as an introduction to the journal for new readers.
