The Logical Syntax of Greek Mathematics by Fabio Acerbi
English | PDF | 2021 | 400 Pages | ISBN : 3030769585 | 4.7 MB
The aim of this monograph is to describe Greek mathematics as a literary product, studying its style from a logico-syntactic point of view and setting parallels with logical and grammatical doctrines developed in antiquity. In this way, major philosophical themes such as the expression of mathematical generality and the selection of criteria of validity for arguments can be treated without anachronism. Thus, the book is of interest for both historians of ancient philosophy and specialists in Ancient Greek, in addition to historians of mathematics.
