Digital magazine “Mathematics for philosophers” (Portugal)

Culture


New Acropolis Portugal launches a new digital magazine: “Mathematics for Philosophers”.

One has the possibility to read it online or it can be downloaded for free. Every two months its articles, of clear platonic orientation, will make us reflect on arithmetic or geometric themes, going, as the author of the Republic says, from the chaos of the senses to the order and sense of reason.

In this first issue we speak of PI (3.1415) as a geometric symbol of the creative power of Nature, and of Euclid’s algorithm. We can also find an article about the antiquity of zero, another on Pythagorean tradition and sacred geometry in Portugal, and an announcement on the activities of the Lima de Freitas Circle.
