A hallmark of ancient Greek thought is the development of mathematics. Greek mathematics are the foundation upon which all modern-day math is based. The names of ancient mathematicians are still interwoven with their discoveries—Euclidean geometry, the Pythagorean Theorem, and the Archimedean Axiom, testifying to the significance of mathematics’ Greek origins. Selections Illustrating the History of Greek Mathematics is a compilation of texts about the development of Greek mathematics. Translator and compiler Ivor Thomas draws from the works of Greek mathematicians and historians. This compilation furnishes a complete picture of the rise of Greek mathematics. It's of value both to classics scholars and to mathematicians seeking to understand the origins of their study.
This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each text is included in its original Greek, with an English translation for side-by-side comparison. Use Noet’s language tools to go deeper into the Greek text with linked translations, definitions, and pronunciation tools. You can also use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult English words. Quick and easy access to definitions and lexical information allows you to understand Greek mathematics like never before.
