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.
A true gem, one of the masterpieces of our age.
-American Mathematical Monthly
