Loving and Hating Mathematics: Challenging the Myths of Mathematical Life
By: Hersh, Reuben
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Class No.: 510.92 HER
Accession No.: 026594
Year: 2010
Pages: 416 p.



Mathematics is often thought of as the coldest expression of pure reason. But few subjects provoke hotter emotions--and inspire more love and hatred--than mathematics. And although math is frequently idealized as floating above the messiness of human life, its story is nothing if not human; often, it is all too human. Loving and Hating Mathematics is about the hidden human, emotional, and social forces that shape mathematics and affect the experiences of students and mathematicians. Written in a lively, accessible style, and filled with gripping stories and anecdotes, Loving and Hating Mathematics brings home the intense pleasures and pains of mathematical life.
