Lesson

Filed under: General,Geometry — m759 @ 12:00 PM

From Tony Rothman's review of a 2006 book by
Siobhan Roberts

"The most engaging aspect of the book is its
chronicle of the war between geometry and algebra,
which pits Coxeter, geometry's David, against
Nicolas Bourbaki, algebra's Goliath."

The conclusion of Rothman's review—

"There is a lesson here."
