Green Lion Press Has Prepared A New One Volume Edition Of T.L Heath S Translation Of The Thirteen Books Of Euclid S Elements In Keeping With Green Lion S Design Commitment, Diagrams Have Been Placed On Every Spread For Convenient Reference While Working Through The Proofs Running Heads On Every Page Indicate Both Euclid S Book Number And Proposition Numbers For That Page And Adequate Space For Notes Is Allowed Between Propositions And Around Diagrams The All New Index Has Built Into It A Glossary Of Euclid S Greek Terms.Heath S Translation Has Stood The Test Of Time, And, As One Done By A Renowned Scholar Of Ancient Mathematics, It Can Be Relied Upon Not To Have Inadvertantly Introduced Modern Concepts Or Nomenclature We Have Excised The Voluminous Historical And Scholarly Commentary That Swells The Dover Edition To Three Volumes And Impedes Classroom Use Of The Original Text The Single Volume Is Not Only Convenient, But Less Expensive As Well. I am rating this primarily to boost its 4.64 average rating I feel ridiculous reviewing it.This book is good, and people with cerebral cortexes know that.For reference, one person who gave it one star gave Allan Moore s Watchmen graphic novel read

Euclid alone has looked on beauty bare Edna St Vincent MillayThis is a statement I believestrongly as I experienceof Euclid s propositions for myself Before encountering Euclid, I had never considered mathematics to be something beautiful Now, however, the sheer logical clarity with which Euclid attempts to grapple with the principles of the world around him actually brings tears to my eyes From how he uses the idea of equality as a foundation for everything else to how he p Euclid alone has looked on beauty bare Edna St Vincent MillayThis is a statement I believestrongly as I experienceof Euclid s propositions for myself Before encountering Euclid, I had never considere

Geometry is not a given, it is a mystery.Euclid invites the modern reader to rethink what a book is, and how we might have related to math differently as a child in school if The Elements had been our textbooks What are the elements that the title refers to What are the complexes that the elements make up You cannot just read this book, I would suggest demonstrating the proofs one by one on a board in front of peers, then discussing each one.I have read a lot of books, this book is the most in Geometry is not a given, it is a mystery.Euclid invites the modern reader to rethink what a book is, and how we might have related to math differently as a ch

Euclid s Elements is one of the oldest surviving works of mathematics, and the very oldest that uses an axiomatic framework As such, it is a landmark in the history of Western thought, and has proven so enduring that the Elements has been used nearly continuously since being written, only recently falling out of favor.Not much is known about Euclid, other than that he must have been an unparalleled genius Nothing about his personality can be gleaned from this book either, other than that he wa Euclid s Elements is one of the oldest surviving works of mathematics, and the very oldest that uses an axiomatic framework As such, it is a landmark in the history of Western thought, and has proven so enduring that the Elements has been used nearly continuously since being written, only recently falling out of favor.Not much

Update Again, I find myself starting with the disclaimer that I did not actually read this in its entirety And I never meant to My goal was to work through the first four books and that I have done Can I honestly say that I enjoyed it and am glad I did it Yes, I really can Not sure that it makes me a better or wiser person but it makes me SOUND like a better and wiser person when I get to say things like, Oh, yes It is like that time I worked through Book 3 of Euclid s Elements Tha Update Again, I find

I never really began to understand mathematics until I encountered Euclid If I had had this book as a child, I feel like my eyes would have been opened to a lotthan they were.Euclid s Elements is the foundation of geometry and number theory There is no long winded explanation instead, from a set of 23 definit

Most exquisite. In order to fully enjoy Euclid, you must first completely rid yourself of preconceptions about the world of mathematics Euclid sets up his postulates and from there he proves what he needs to prove There is very much a sense of wonder and excitement in reading Euclid He proves things that we would never think to prove and he does so in a completely logical and beautiful way With a clima

Often called the Father of Geometry, Euclid was a Greek mathematician living during the reign of Ptolemy I around 300 BC Within his foundational textbook Elements, Euclid presents the results of earlier mathematicians and includes many of his own theories in a systematic, concise book that utilized meticulous proofs and a brief set of axioms to solidify his deductions In addition to
