              In order to understand the universe you must know the language in which it is written. And that language is mathematics - Galileo (1564-1642) For hundreds of thousands of years, we have sought order in the apparent chaos of the universe. Mathematics has been our most valuable too...l in that search, uncovering the patterns and rules that govern our world and beyond. This illustrated guide traces humankind's greatest achievements in mathematics, plotting a journey from innumerate cave-dwellers, through the towering intellects of the last 4,000 years, to where we stand today. Including a giant timeline wallchart, Foundations is a brilliant hardback reference book which charts the development of this intriguing and expansive discipline, from early history to modern day.
