This paper, an ``informal outline'' containing many passages from classical sources without any exact references, is reprinted from [the author, in: Development of mathematics 1900-1950, Ed. Jean-Paul Pier, Basel, Birkh??user, 157-170 (1994; Zbl 0806.01014)]. The author reviews the introduction of measure theory into probability; notes the pertinent methodological and psychological difficulties connected with the disappearance of ``romantic connotations'' of probability; discusses the impact of the new probability theory on analysis and the present relations between these to disciplines.
