Somewhat Interesting but dry This book is the author's reflection on mathematics and consists of a historical overview the foundation of mathematics in commerce general observations and proofs Berlinski tries to make it interesting and winso

The author a mathematics and philosophy professor writes about the basic concepts of simple arithmetic addition subtraction multiplication division starting with the premise that numbers exist outside of human endeavor then on to the definition of addition which is just adding by one lingering at the problem of zero then through some rather convoluted proofs of various theorems to stop at the abstract algebraic concepts of ring

Weird but enjoyable Literature plus mathematics I guess?But really isn’t this how we all are much impressed by things we do not understand and hoping that they represent something very wise and interesting?To get the number from the fraction

An entertaining jaunt through some important points in the history and philosophy of the most basic foundations in mathematics

David Berlinksi is among the leaders of writing so called popular books about different aspects of math some that is highly advanced as in The Advent of the Algorithm and some that is very very basic as in 2011's One Two ThreeBerlinksi assigns the basic mathematical functions the group name AEM or Absolutely Elementary Mathematic

This book made me think about how much we take for granted in basic mathematics What is the abstract concept of a number where did it come from?

Too wordy by the multiplicative inverse of one's successorBerlinski is far too enad by his own words to the point that even when he is making very simple arguments it becomes easy to lose track of where he is heading Don't get me wrong; I love math history anecdotes and analogies But when the telling is so ornate and circumlocutory it obscures than reveals As evidenced by those fake proofs of 12 which depend on the re
