The Mathematical Experience

PHILIP J. DAVIS & REUBEN HERSH

A brilliant and engrossing view of the development of mathematics... Wonderful at communicating its beauty and excitement to the general reader.

-New York Times

The entire, richly diverse world of mathematics is presented in The Mathematical Experience: its history and philosophy, its aesthetics and pedagogy - even its personalities, who are portrayed in fascinating biographical sketches interwoven with accesible yet authoritative discussions of their work.

A perfectly marvelous book

-The New Yorker

What hath Godel, Escher, Bach wrought? This wonderful book, evidently, in the same multidisciplined tradition.

-Boston Globe

A true gem, one of the masterpieces of our age.

-American Mathematical Monthly
