(Passions, Fleas, Gods and Mathematics. The Human Condition in the Light of the Oldest Science). If you’re one of those who think there is little relationship between the human condition and mathematics, you have to read this book. You will find mythology, music, war, astronomy, literature and mathematics travelling together through time
and space from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Ancient Greece and Constantinople besieged by Turks to Poland occupied by the Nazis. A fascinating journey from the centre of the Earth to the furthermost planets of our solar system, from the nucleus of a miniscule atom to the immensity of infinity. As well as showing in an intelligent and entertaining way what mathematics is and what it’s useful for, Antonio J. Durán confronts the cold, abstract universe of theorems with the passionate and emotional world lived by those who discover them. This passionate chronicle, as readable as a novel, shows how the oldest of sciences is also capable of revealing the complexities of the human condition.
