            In order to understand the universe you must know the language in which it is written. And that language is mathematics - Galileo (1564-1642) For hundreds of thousands of years, we have sought order in the apparent chaos of the universe. Mathematics has been our most valuable too...l in that search, uncovering the patterns and rules that govern our world and beyond. This illustrated guide traces humankind's greatest achievements in mathematics, plotting a journey from innumerate cave-dwellers, through the towering intellects of the last 4,000 years, to where we stand today. Including a giant timeline wallchart, Foundations is a brilliant hardback reference book which charts the development of this intriguing and expansive discipline, from early history to modern day.

            Is mathematics a discovery or an invention? Have we invented numbers or do they truly exist? What sort of reality could we attribute to them? Mathematics has always been a way of understanding and ordering the world: from sacred ancient texts and pre-Socratic philosophers to twen...tieth-century logicians such as Russell and Frege and beyond. In this masterful, elegant book, mathematician and philosopher Paolo Zellini offers a brief cultural and intellectual history of mathematics, from ancient Greece to India to our contemporary obsession with algorithms, showing how mathematical thinking is inextricably linked with philosophical, existential and religious questions - and indeed with our cosmic understanding of the world.
