No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
I am very nearly mathematically illiterate (which has to do with one's visual memory), so why not start at the beginning? My taste in art tends towards the geometrical and abstract, so it's good to delve into The Elements. P.S. I am culling my library and feeding my Little Free Library. Enjoy! P.P.S. Formally diagnosed with dyscalculia & autism. Great, important text which it would take me too much time to understand, if I could understand it all, alas. ( )
Some praise for the Green Lion edition: they carry the diagrams on as long as needed -- that is, if a proof has a diagram, the diagram will appear on every page the proof occupies, saving you having to flip back and forth. Simple and brilliant.
It's also printed on nice paper and, overall, is a really swell edition. I suppose it can be argued that Heath's translation is out of date but ... has anyone done a better one?
Bound w/ vol. 2; price per set of five vols
It could be said that all of Western mathematics and science is a footnote to Euclid. This book is the cornerstone of western thought. It is the earliest and most conspicuous work which laid out the foundation, not only for geometry, but for logic itself. This is the book that should be studied in High School geometry, not the vapid, watered-down textbooks in use today.

Often called the Father of Geometry, Euclid was a Greek mathematician living during the reign of Ptolemy I around 300 BC. Within his foundational textbook "Elements," Euclid presents the results of earlier mathematicians and includes many of his own theories in a systematic, concise book that utilized meticulous proofs and a brief set of axioms to solidify his deductions. In addition to its easily referenced geometry, "Elements" also includes number theory and other mathematical considerations. For 23 centuries, this work was the primary textbook of mathematics, containing the only possible geometry known by mathematicians until the late 19th century. Today, Euclid's "Elements" is acknowledged as one of the most influential mathematical texts in history. This volume includes all thirteen books of Euclid's "Elements" and is translated by Thomas Heath.
