Description
What is a number? How do addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division actually work? What are geometry and logic? In his latest foray into the inner world of mathematics, the author of Infinite Ascent takes on the simplest questions that can be asked, discovering the beauty and complexity behind "simple math," making clear how and why these concepts are essential to who we are. Filled with anecdotes and asides about some of the most fascinating mathematicians and logicians through the ages—including Euclid, Pierre Abélard, Augustus De Morgan, and Bertrand Russell—David Berlinski explores how mathematics originated, who thought of it, and why it matters.

"With wit and philosophy, with the clash of symbols and history, Berlinski displays the inner soul of simple arithmetic."—Philip J. Davis
