The Shaping of Deduction in Greek Mathematics: A Study in Cognitive History
Cambridge University Press, 18 de set de 2003 - 352 páginas
The aim of this book is to explain the shape of Greek mathematical thinking. It can be read on three levels: first as a description of the practices of Greek mathematics; second as a theory of the emergence of the deductive method; and third as a case-study for a general view on the history of science.
