A History of Pi by Petr Beckmann

A History of Pi

by Petr Beckmann

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 42 Min.


The history of pi, says the author, though a small part of the history of mathematics, is nevertheless a mirror of the history of man. Petr Beckmann holds up this mirror, giving the background of the times when pi made progress - and also when it did not, because science was being stifled by militarism or religious fanaticism.
