The article reflects the state of mathematics between the natural sciences and the humanities. By arguing that mathematics is a humanities subject, it suggests a close connection between mathematics and urban morphology studies. This also applies to the discrepancy between quantitative and qualitative methodological approaches. New types of research based on quantitative methods reveal previously unknown aspects of urban phenomena. They will play an increasingly important role in future research, and it is a challenge for the humanities to effectively integrate mathematical perspectives on the human habitat.
