Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Another interesting observation is to reflect on the "styles" (elegance, nitty gritty) of one's lecturers. Our algebra lecturer was a grandchild of Cayley and gave very elegant lectures, the functional analysis lecturer had an approach in between algebra and analysis (from GH Hardy). Then ...

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Graeme Segal and Nigel Hitchen were my pure maths tutors. They put me off for life. I saw Segal not that long ago. He was wearing mostly brown; if you know him you’ll understand my surprise. I see. My topology lecturer (who was a PhD student of Hodge (Atiyah's supervisor)) put me off topology as we...

Sasae tsurikomi ashi @3.00 (editing is not so good).

Re: Philosophy of Mathematics

Hardy, A Mathematician's Apology In my teen's I treasured this book, I also inherited the anti-applied math slant, with the probably unhelpful idealism (but we are all young once). Would also add 'Discourse on the Method' by René Descartes, a must for all! The motto, 'the world is the encyclopedia ...
