    This article describes the growth of the idea of values in the field of mathematics education. The story of that development is however a personal one, as befits the topic of values, which themselves are highly personal. Instead of reporting a thorough literature search and account, the aim is to present an account as seen from the perspective of a researcher who is, and has been always, involved in the search for more productive ways to conceptualise mathematics education. The article thus sets the scene for the more scholarly foci of the articles in this collection.
