Additionally, some of the subjects covered in the book were more interesting to me than others After reading the prologue and first chapter of the book, I felt that Devlin was able to put into words many of the feeling I had about mathematics, matejatiky I found it intrinsically beautiful, and why I enjoyed doing it. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Those patterns can be either real or imagined, visual or mental, static or dynamic, qualitative or quantitative, purely utilitarian or of little more than recreational interest.

His current research is focused on the use of differ Dr. Yes, I did feel real sad after reading this book. Making the Invisible Visible by Keith J. Entertaining but not practical for Not bad – sort of an introduction to the major themes of mathematics. Entertaining but not practical for classroom use. Oct 16, Elvin Ngo rated it really liked it.

Full of light and simplified explanations of deep and purely scientific subjects as well as daily life “for granted” themes that most of us don’t even think of for a second to see what’s behind, conceptually.

Suparit Suwanik rated it it was amazing Aug 31, This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Microwave ovens, telephone cables, children’s toys, pacemakers, automobiles, and computers—all operate on mathematical principles. An excellent reminder of how awesome math can be.


Theresa Turner rated it did not like it Dec 20, Highly recommended for anyone who wants to be in touch with and for those who’re ‘afraid’ of Math.

Extremely interesting and surprisingly easy to read!


Thomas rated it liked it Mar 29, Nov 24, Eric rated it it was amazing. Just a moment while we sign you in to matemaitky Goodreads account. Most of it is accessible to anyone with little or no math background, but there are highly technical sections.

Devlin attempts to show us the construction of mathematics by its application and by demonstrating its conceptual genealogy. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Sep 21, Arun Mahendrakar rated it it was amazing. Recommended for readers not familiar with math but want to know more.

So many books on History of Mathematics and philosophical approach but this is outstanding work by Keith. It sort of “whets the appetite” for studying math beyond the textbook. The Language of Mathematics: Delvin doesn’t strive to make a philosophical statement about math, yet it seems that he wants to posit mathematic’s reality as being on par with the one in which we live.

The following chapters then clarify all kind of patterns described in math. It seems like these relationships tend to be glossed over during a standard education, which is a shame, since the unity behind the different disciplines is one of jaztk more interesting aspects of mathematics. After that the last few chapters felt somehow rushed through. Sevlin than just the study matematiku numbers, mathematics provides us with the eyes to recognize and describe the hidden patterns of life—patterns that exist in the physical, biological, and social worlds without, and the realm of ideas and thoughts within.


Indeed, if you have to read only one paragraph of this book, you may well just read that. The author does a fairly good job of sticking to concepts I found his supposition that math is the study of patterns to be interesting and shying away from equations. The narrative connects various dots folks and theories The book is an amazing journey through the history of mathematics that touches upon and connects discoveries and inventions in number theory, reasoning logiccalculus, shape geometriesposition topologysymmetry groupsprobability, and finally universe atomic particles, quantum theory, etc.

And so to that end, Devlin does not make this statement, although he seems to suggest it with many vague chapter titles and ruminations on how various patterns in the universe are at least explainable in mathematics.
