The discoveries and insights of ancient mathematicians continue to inspire, amaze and fascinate the modern reader. From the theorem of Pythagoras to Euclid's "Elements', much of what we know today was built on the legacy of the ancients.

This volume is the first genuinely accessible survey of the discipline in all its brilliance and diversity. It covers the period between the fifth-century B.C.E. to the sixth-century C.E. and such topics as mathematics and politics in classical Greece, the formation of mathematical traditions, and mathematics and Christianity. Also included are segments on individual ancient mathematicians.

Ancient Mathematics will be essential for science history students and a valuable resource for the non-specialist.
