      Overall, the reader will not be disappointed, no matter what he or she is looking for in this book: well researched and well written, The Mathematics of Life is an informative, compelling narrative of precisely the mathematics of life. It is likely that the reader will finish this survey of the sciences and end the book intellectually satisfied. The updated new edition of the classic and comprehensive guide to the history of mathematics For more than forty years, A History of Mathematics has been the reference of choice for those looking to learn about the fascinating history of humankind’s relationship with numbers, shapes, and patterns.

Biology, formerly a science with sparse, often only qualitative data has turned into a field whose production of quantitative data is on par with high energy physics or astronomy, and whose data are wildly more heterogeneous and complex.

Social revolutions--critical periods of decisive, qualitative change--are a commonly acknowledged historical fact. The publication of Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions in led to an exciting discussion of revolutions in the natural sciences; an off-shoot of this was a debate in the United States in the mid's as to whether the concept of revolution could be applied to.

The consensus of opinion, as presented here and in the new essays that follow (including more recent reflections by Crowe, Mehrtens, and Dauben), suggests that revolutions do, indeed, occur in the history of mathematics, but that these often cannot be understood in terms of the "paradigm shifts," "disciplinary ma- trices," or "exemplars" so Author: David E.
