### CHARACTERS Mathematics for Liberal Arts

CHARACTERS ¹ Mathematics for Liberal Arts SUMMARY ↠ SALAMUSEO.CO ¹ Morris Kline Practical scientific philosophical and artistic problems have caused men to investigate mathematics But there is one other motive which is as strong as any of these the search for beauty Mathematics is an art and as such affords the pleasures which all the arts afford In this erudite entertaining college level text Morris Kline Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at New York University provides the liberal arts student with a detailed treatment of mathematics in a cultural and historical context The book can also act as a self study vehicle for advanced high school students and laymen Professor Kline begins with an ove. I enjoyed getting the survey of math I ve been kind of trying to get a better understanding of how different branches of math fit together and I think walking through the history of the development of math was helpful I know other people have noted that the book is a little western centric in their reviews but I mean it s written by some old white man in the 60 s I would just take everything he says especially about the history of math with a grain of salt I wonder if there s some updated book I could read on math that surveys math and the different branches I feel like a lot of what was covered in the book was stuff I learned already in school especially high school I do think it s worth a read for people wh

**SUMMARY ↠ SALAMUSEO.CO ¹ Morris Kline**

CHARACTERS ¹ Mathematics for Liberal Arts SUMMARY ↠ SALAMUSEO.CO ¹ Morris Kline Rview tracing the development of mathematics to the ancient Greeks and following its evolution through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the present day Subseuent chapters focus on specific subject areas such as Logic and Mathematics Number The Fundamental Concept Parametric Euations and Curvilinear Motion The Differential Calculus and The Theory of Probability Each of these sections offers a step by step explanation of concepts and then tests the student's understanding with exercises and problems At the same time these concepts are linked to pure and applied science engineering philosophy the social sciences or. We are in 1967 Kline is trying to thrill us nonmathematicians with mathematics Bravo He dares to go through the centuries explaining how the foundations of mathematics have been evolving Of course his accounts on history and philosophy throughout this book are naturally biased because he is madly in love with mathematics However he makes mathematics very interesting By showing it as a growing body of knowledge defining in precise terms the chain of ideas that have been pushing civilization forward Incredible Here goes my favorite example Non Euclidean geometry set mathematicians FREER because it showed that mathematics is NOT a body of truths It is a body of consistent reasoning being slowly developed within
