Six Septembers: Mathematics for the Humanist
by Patrick Juola, Stephen Ramsay
Publisher: Zea Books 2017
Number of pages: 433
Scholars of all stripes are turning their attention to materials that represent enormous opportunities for the future of humanistic inquiry. The purpose of this book is to impart the concepts that underlie the mathematics they are likely to encounter and to unfold the notation in a way that removes that particular barrier completely. This book is a primer for developing the skills to enable humanist scholars to address complicated technical material with confidence.
