The enterprise of science in Islam new perspectives ( )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Between A.D. 800 and 1450, the most important centers for the study of what we now call "the exact sciences" - including the mathematical sciences of arithmetic, geometry, and trigonometry and their applications in such fields as astronomy, astrology, geography, cartography, and optics - were not in Europe but in the vast, multinational Islamic world." "This book offers an overview of this newly energized field of historical investigation. The topics discussed include cross-cultural transmission; transformations of Greek optics; the philosophy and practice of mathematics; numbers, geometry, and architecture; the transmission of astronomy; and science and medicine in the Maghrib. The emphasis throughout the book is on the transmission of scientific knowledge, either from one culture to another or within the medieval Islamic world."--BOOK JACKET

Patterns of change linguistic innovations in the development of classical mathematics by Ladislav Kvasz ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book offers a reconstruction of linguistic innovations in the history of mathematics; innovations which changed the ways in which mathematics was clone, understood and philosophically interpreted. It argues that there are at least three ways in which the language of mathematics has been changed throughout its history, thus determining the lines of development that mathematics has followed." "The book offers tools of analysis by means of which scholars and students of the history and philosophy of mathematics can attain better understanding of the various changes, which the subject of their study underwent in the course of history. The book brings also important insights for mathematics education connecting growth of language with the development of mathematical thought."--BOOK JACKET
