The Magical Maze: Seeing the World Through Mathematical Eyes
DescriptionEnter the magical maze of mathematics and explore the surprising passageways of a fantastical world where logic and imagination converge. For mathematics is a maze - a maze in your head - a maze of ideas, a maze of logic. And that maze in your mind is a powerful tool for understanding an even bigger maze - the maze of cause and effect that we call "the universe." In this book, author Ian Stewart leads you through the junctions, byways, and secret passages of the magical maze to reveal its beauty, its surprise, and its power. Along the way, he reveals the infinite possibilities that arise from what he calls "the two-way trade between the natural world and the human mind."
