Book Description Pelican Books Penguin, London England, 1986. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Paperback Printing. PaperbackDescartes' Dream : The World According to Mathematics.This book is a refreshing, unusual and highly original account of the influence of computers on mathematics, science and ,society. It is a non-technical and highly accessible discussion of a very important topic.-Dr. Ian Stewart, Reader in Mathematics, University of Warwick. The Mathematical Experience was one of the most remarkable and intriguing books ever written on mathematics. This is the long-awaited sequel, and the authors again combine their enthusiasm for their subject, expository skills and humane sympathy. Descartes' Dream: The World According` to Mathematics is a deeply ethical book and another work of reflection, exposition and philosophy. Here, the authors are concerned with the impact mathematics makes when it is applied to the world that lies outside mathematics itself. Today the applications of mathematics are affected to an ever-increasing degree by means of the computer. The possibilities of this are considered to be so all-embracing that many aspects of our day-to-day lives are being reconstituted to fit in with computerisation. How good for humanity is the ever-increasing mathematisation of everyday life? Must we live with it, like it or not, or can we choose to reject it when we deem it inhuman or anti-human? Philip J. Davis and Reuben Hersh raise and in part answer these, and many more, intriguing scientific and ethical questions, and the work is marked by its lively, non technical approach. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. academic and scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Academic Literature.). Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 085848
