Long Way from Euclid
A compelling introduction to modern mathematics, this lively guide by a prominent historian focuses on the role of Euclid's Elements in mathematical developments of the last 2,000 years. No mathematical background beyond elementary algebra and plane geometry is necessary to appreciate the author's clear and simple explanations, which are augmented by more than 80 drawings. Intriguing topics include the arithmetic of the infinite, the paradoxes of point sets, using tables to test logical truth, and patterns of four-dimensional objects. 1963 ed.
