Very interesting but i doubt someone totally without mathematical knowledge can fully appreciate it.

The Language of Mathematics: Making the Invisible Visible

He didn’t over do the diagrams and they certainly added to the text. Delvin doesn’t strive to make a philosophical statement about math, yet it seems that he wants to posit mathematic’s reality as being on par with the one in which we live. In striving to show us applicabili This is a fairly concise book. Be the first to ask a question about The Language of Mathematics.

More than just the study of numbers, mathemat “The great book of nature,” said Galileo, “can be read only by those who know the language in which it was written. Besides the great historical perspective and narrative, the exposition about the math sevlin what makes the book special. A particular study was classified as mathematics not so much because of what was studied but because of how it was studied—that is, the methodology used. I don’t have a problem with his content, or how he talks about it.

Jun 10, So Hakim rated it it was amazing Shelves: After reading the prologue and devlun chapter of the book, I felt that Devlin was able to put into words many of the feeling I had about mathematics, why I found it intrinsically beautiful, and why I enjoyed doing it.
