Superb Now I understand why and how philosophy was for 2000 years, since Euclid, trying to be like mathematics Arriving to truth by deduction from self evident axioms This influence of maths has been pervasive See this mathematical text, says the book We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness Yes, it is the Preamble to the Superb Now I understand why and how philosophy was for 2000 years, since Euclid, trying to be like mathematics Arriving to truth by deduction from self evident axioms This influence of maths has been pervasive See this mathematical text, says the book We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness Yes, it is the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence of USA

Helpful, interesting, but not the most enjoyable presentation of the material Kline wears his biases about intellectual history on his sleeve.

One of the best books I have ever read Kline s presentation of material is a pleasure to read His sweeping review of the history of maths and culture is engaging, challenging, and fascinating It draws vast outlines and makes conceptualizing the history as a whole manageable, and it is a fantastic starting point for anyone interested in these ideas It also a wonderful substitute for aorthodox history of mathematics If you are on the fence, read this book.

I have marked this as read, though actually I began to skim fairly early on The attitudes of the author seem so dated now, even on such a universal subject I disliked the whole tone of the writing, I m afraid An impartial history of mathematics would be muchreadable.

A simple but really wonderful book Highly accessible Eye opening to this old fellow

A very well written book I started out reading this in preparation for taking Calculus Having gone through Calc 2, I realize now I probably didn t have to read this in order to do well in class But I am glad that I read this because it taught me so much about the history of mathematics and logic in western culture, as the title denotes as well as other cool principles and facts A good read

Excellent.

This books shows beautifully how mathematics did not develop in isolation, but grew out of contact with other fields, with the interaction and influence going both ways A great read from beginning to end.
