Michael Harris, "Mathematics without Apologies: Portrait
of a Problematic Vocation"
English | ISBN: 0691154236 | 2015 | 464 pages | PDF | 4
MB
What do pure mathematicians do, and why do they do it?
Looking beyond the conventional answersÔÇöfor the sake
of truth, beauty, and practical applicationsÔÇöthis book
offers an eclectic panorama of the lives and values and
hopes and fears of mathematicians in the twenty - first
century, assembling material from a startlingly diverse
assortment of scholarly, journalistic, and pop culture
sources.

Drawing on his personal experiences and obsessions as
well as the thoughts and opinions of mathematicians from
Archimedes and Omar Khayyám to such contemporary
giants as Alexander Grothendieck and Robert Langlands,
Michael Harris reveals the charisma and romance of
mathematics as well as its darker side. In this portrait of
mathematics as a community united around a set of
common intellectual, ethical, and existential challenges,
he touches on a wide variety of questions, such as: Are
mathematicians to blame for the 2008 financial crisis? How
can we talk about the ideas we were born too soon to
understand? And how should you react if you are asked
to explain number theory at a dinner party?

Disarmingly candid, relentlessly intelligent, and richly
entertaining, Mathematics without Apologies takes
readers on an unapologetic guided tour of the
mathematical life, from the philosophy and sociology of
mathematics to its reflections in film and popular music,
with detours through the mathematical and mystical
traditions of Russia, India, medieval Islam, the Bronx,
and beyond.
