Schon lange bevor die Schrift entwickelt wurde, hat der Mensch geometrische Strukturen wahrgenommen und systematisch verwendet. So entstehen beim Weben und Flechten einfache zweidimensionale Muster und ohne dreidimensionale Körper wie Quader, Würfel oder Pyramide ist keine Bautätigkeit denkbar. Das vorliegende Buch gibt einen faszinierenden Überblick über die geometrischen Vorstellungen und Erkenntnisse der Menschen von der Urgesellschaft bis hin zu den komplexen mathematischen wie auch künstlerischen Ideen des 20. Jahrhunderts. Neben vielen Abbildungen wird jede Epoche mit einer Tabelle zeit- und kulturgeschichtlicher Daten eingeleitet und mit einer tabellarischen Darstellung der wesentlichen Inhalte der Geometrie dieser Zeit abgeschlossen. Aufgaben am Ende jeden Kapitels laden den Leser ein, sich an den Problemen der alten Meister selber zu versuchen. Ein Buch für alle, die der Lebendigkeit und Entwicklung der Geometrie als erste "Anwendungswissenschaft" nachspüren wollen. Für die 2. Auflage wurde ein Kapitel über geometrischen Vorstellungen amerikanischer Frühkulturen hinzugefügt und im ersten Kapitel neuste Forschungsergebnisse eingearbeitet
