**Essays on the Theory of Numbers**

by Richard Dedekind

**Publisher**: The Open Court Publishing 1901**ISBN/ASIN**: 0486210103**Number of pages**: 78

**Description**:

This is a book combining two essays by Dedekind: "Continuity and irrational numbers" - Dedekind's way of defining the real numbers from rational numbers; and "The nature and meaning of numbers" where Dedekind offers a precise explication of the natural numbers (using what are now called the Peano axioms, since Peano made so much of them after reading Dedekind).
