Flanagan's Version, Flanagan, Dennis
2 Flanagan, Dennis Flanagan's Version
Vintage 1989 0679721568 / 9780679721567 Paperback Very Good 
A tight clean softcover, no markings throughout: Flanagan's writing makes science accessible and exciting. He shows how science is an important, cultural activity--one which he has found continuously fascinating in his 37 years as an editor of Scientific American. Selecting four areas--physics, astronomy, geology, and biology--he examines the discoveries which he believes make them the areas of most significant growth at the present time. He has not included medicine because he thinks the greatest changes are yet to come with the further development of molecular biology. Weaving together narratives which include interesting anecdotes about the scientists, the circumstances of their work, historical fact, and scientific facts, Flanagan offers a book that fits together beautifully and makes the point that modern scientists are "travelers on a common road," for advances in one field often have impact on knowledge in another. This book will encourage many readers to become interested in science as a career because of the excitement and vision it conveys.

Mathematician's Delight (Penguin mathematics), Sawyer, W. W.
9 Sawyer, W. W. Mathematician's Delight (Penguin mathematics)
Penguin Books 1991 0140130349 / 9780140130348 Paperback Good 
'The main object of this book is to dispel the fear of mathematics. Many pe ople regard mathematicians as a race apart, possessed of almost supernatura l powers. While this is very flattering for successful mathematicians, it i s very bad for those who, for one reason or another, are attempting to lear n the subject.'W.W. Sawyer's deep understanding of how we learn and his liv ely, practical approach have made this an ideal introduction to mathematics for generations of readers. By starting at the level of simple arithmetic and algebra and then proceeding step by step through graphs, logarithms and trigonometry to calculus and the dizzying world of imaginary numbers, the book takes the mystery out of maths. Throughout, Sawyer reveals how theory is subordinate to the real-life applications of mathematics - the Pyramids were built on Euclidean principles three thousand years before Euclid formu lated them - and celebrates the sheer intellectual stimulus of mathematics at its best.

Thinking about Mathematics: The Philosophy of Mathematics, Shapiro, Stewart
10 Shapiro, Stewart Thinking about Mathematics: The Philosophy of Mathematics
Oxford University Press 2000 0192893068 / 9780192893062 Paperback Very Good 
This unique book by Stewart Shapiro looks at a range of philosophical issue s and positions concerning mathematics in four comprehensive sections. Part I describes questions and issues about mathematics that have motivated phi losophers since the beginning of intellectual history. Part II is an histor ical survey, discussing the role of mathematics in the thought of such phil osophers as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, and Mill. Part III covers the three maj or positions held throughout the twentieth century: the idea that mathemati cs is logic (logicism), the view that the essence of mathematics is the rul e-governed manipulation of characters (formalism), and a revisionist philos ophy that focuses on the mental activity of mathematics (intuitionism). Fin ally, Part IV brings the reader up-to-date with a look at contemporary deve lopments within the discipline. This sweeping introductory guide to the phi losophy of mathematics makes these fascinating concepts accessible to those with little background in either mathematics or philosophy.

Overcoming Math Anxiety, Tobias, Sheila
12 Tobias, Sheila Overcoming Math Anxiety
W. W. Norton & Company 1995 0393313077 / 9780393313079 Paperback Very Good 
Sheila Tobias said it first: mathematics avoidance is not a failure of inte llect, but a failure of nerve. When this book was first published in 1978, Tobias's political and psychological analysis brought hope and made "math a nxiety" a household expression. The new edition retains the author's pungen t analysis of what makes math "hard" for otherwise successful people and ho w women, more than men, become victims of a gendered view of math. It has b een substantially updated to incorporate new research on what we know and d on't know about "sex differences" in brain organization and function, and i t has been enlarged to include problems, puzzles, and strategies tried out in hundreds of math anxiety workshops Tobias and her colleagues have sponso red. What remains unchanged is the author's politics. She sees "math anxiety" as a political issue. So long as people themselves to be disabled in mathematics and do not rise up and confront the social and pedagogical origins of their disabilities, they will be denied "math mental health." Tobias defines this as "the willingness to learn the math you need when you need it." In an ever more technical society, having that willingness can make the difference between high and low self-esteem, failure and success.
