"The dictionary states that mathematics is a deductive science that studies the properties of abstract entities, such as numbers & geometric shapes, & their relationships. However, this definition misses out on a fundamental fact: more often than not, mathematics is guided by poetic emotion & a sense of beauty. The purpose of this book is to illustrate, using examples from the history of the discipline, the extremely important aesthetic & emotional dimensions in the science of mathematics."
