Summary

In March 1989 a Bourbaki seminar was held at the Institut Henri Poincaré in Paris. Bourbaki is the name of a group of French mathematicians founded shortly after the Second World War. The first of its famous seminars was held in 1948. Work was published jointly by the mathematicians in the group, who chose to sign it with the name of a fictitious person, Bourbaki.

Henri Cartan and three other mathematicians (Pierre Cartier, Etienne Ghys, and Jean-Louis Verdier) review the history of the Bourbaki group.
