In The King of Infinite Space, renowned mathematics writer David Berlinski describes the secret history of modern mathematics by exploring the enduring importance of the Greek thinker Euclid, whose elucidation of the basic principles of geometry shaped the way we see the world. Geometry helps us make sense of everything from architecture to military science to fashion, and geometric forms define everything we observeboth natural and manmadein the world around us. And for more than two thousand years, geometry has been equated with Euclid's Elements, the oldest complete text in the western mathematical tradition. Virtually nothing is known, however, about the life of the man who first organized geometric and mathematical knowledge into a system. Now, in The King of Infinite Space, Berlinski provides the definitive story of this elusive mathematician and his path to becoming one of the foundational figures of modern mathematics. In The King of Infinite Space, Berlinski presents a rich, accessible treatment of Euclidean geometry. No other mathematician has so thoroughly transformed the future of the discipline, and Berlinski urges students and general readers alike to take pleasure in the beauty and simplicity of Euclid's geometric system. Although the mathematician himself has vanished into history, Berlinski shows that his textsand the propositions and proofs they set forth remain as robust as ever.
