Review of Ferreiros and Gray's The Architecture of Modern Mathematics [Book Review]
Mathematical Intelligencer 30 (4) (2008)
This collection of essays explores what makes modern mathematics ‘modern’, where ‘modern mathematics’ is understood as the mathematics done in the West from roughly 1800 to 1970. This is not the trivial matter of exploring what makes recent mathematics recent. The term ‘modern’ (or ‘modernism’) is used widely in the humanities to describe the era since about 1900, exemplified by Picasso or Kandinsky in the visual arts, Rilke or Pound in poetry, or Le Corbusier or Loos in architecture (a building by the latter graces the cover of this book’s dust jacket).
