Philosophy of Mathematics and Deductive Structure of Euclid 's "Elements"

Dover Publications (1981)

Abstract
A survey of Euclid's Elements, this text provides an understanding of the classical Greek conception of mathematics and its similarities to modern views as well as its differences. It focuses on philosophical, foundational, and logical questions — rather than strictly historical and mathematical issues — and features several helpful appendixes.
