The Nature of Mathematics
by

Publisher: T. C. & E. C. Jack
Number of pages: 136

Description:
There is no real reason why, with patience, an ordinary person should not understand, speaking broadly, what mathematicians do, why they do it, and what, so far as we know at present, mathematics is. The purpose of this little volume is not to give like a textbook a collection of mathematical methods and examples, but to do, firstly, what textbooks do not do: to show how and why these methods grew up.
