A Mathematician' s Apology
Buchtitel A Mathematician' s Apology
Autor Hardy, G. H.
Beschreibung G. H. Hardy was one of the twentieth century' s finest mathematical thinkers, renowned among his contemporaries as "a real mathematician ... the purest of the pure". This "apology", written poignantly as his mathematical powers were declining, offers a brilliant and engaging account of mathematics as very much more than a science. When it was first published, Graham Greene hailed it alongside Henry James' s notebooks as "the best account of what it is like to be a creative artist".
C.P. Snow's foreword gives sympathetic and witty insights into Hardy' s life, with its rich store of anecdotes concernig his academic life as well as his passion for cricket.

"The New Yorker": ".. one of the most eloquent descriptions in our language of the pleasure and power of mathematical invention."

"The Guardian" : "Great mathematicians rarely write about themselves or about their work, and few of them would have the literary gift to compose an essay of such charm, candour and insight ... a manifesto for mathematics itself."
