Paul Calter's "Squaring the Circle" is a book that represents a lifetime of the author's knowledge on a most important subject matter for any educated individual. This book is a must for anyone who wants to gain an understanding into the construction of our world. More so it is a book that every Geometry and Philosophy teacher should incorporate into their curriculum - both at the High School and University level. I cannot stress this last point enough.

mathematics and art, Squaring the Circle requires no previous mathematics. Authors bio: Contents: Preface. Paul A. Calter is a Visiting Scholar at Dartmouth College and Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at. Vermont Technical College.

Circular Designs in Architecture. Squaring the Circle. The Ellipse and the Spiral.

The text appeals both to mathematicians and to artists and will generally be used in courses that bridge the two subjects. Circular Designs in Architecture. The Sphere and Celestial Themes in Art & Architecture. Brunelleschi’s Peepshow and the Origins of Perspective.

Geometry is a dynamic branch of mathematics that also serves as a creative tool for engineers, artists, and architects. Squaring the Circle: Geometry in Art and Architecture includes all the topics necessary for a solid foundation in geometry and explores the timeless influence of geometry on art and architecture. The text offers wide-ranging exercise sets and related projects that allow students to practice and master the mathematics presented. Each chapter introduces mathematical concepts geometrically and illustrates their nontraditional applications in art and architecture throughout the centuries. Appropriate for both basic mathematics courses and cross-discipline courses in mathematics and art, Squaring the Circle requires no previous mathematics.

Outstanding publication, Knowledge so densely packed you can study for a lifetime.

The math is beyond me but the historical, artistic and esoteric connections are phenomenal.

Fantastic

I bought the book as used and it is USED! The book is nasty, smells really bad and had coffee/soda spilled in it.
Nikobar
Book was in the shape it was supposed to be and it arrived within the time frame stated upon purchase.

Paul Calter's "Squaring the Circle" is a book that represents a lifetime of the author's knowledge on a most important subject matter for any educated individual.

This book is a must for anyone who wants to gain an understanding into the construction of our world. More so it is a book that every Geometry and Philosophy teacher should incorporate into their curriculum - both at the High School and University level. I cannot stress this last point enough. I use this book in my High School Geometry class - in Seattle - (as a supplement to our text book), and the students are literally "blown away" by the combination of the subject knowledge of design, architecture, art, geometry, philospohy, music theory, and mathematics. Students leave my class with impressive designs and a knowldge of their origin, philosphy, and use. This book provides a well-needed interesting and integrated curriculum for any student.

Calter includes the basic lessons and explanations of a regular Geometry course in his book, but then he interweaves an integrated classical curriculum (based on deductive reasoning) rich with well written explanations and diagrams on some of the most interesting and difficult to understand subjects. Furthermore, he shows the reader how to construct many seemingly difficult and beautiful designs.

Calter's book will take the student on an incredible journey through a knowledge which is gained only though Geometry, and, in the past, was only shared among the few.

Once again, I urge all educators in Geometry and Philosophy to get this book, incorporate it into your curriculum, and then thank the author.
I purchased this phenominal book 6 years ago at Vermont Technical College. You may hedge at the price but should consider it as one of the best lifetime investments you can make to aid your understanding of Mathematics, Art, Architecture, Music and History.
