Reviews of The Mathematical Experience 

1. Rating 4.5/5

This is, at last, a book on the way of thinking of the mathematics. Rather than a dull and dry trudge however, the writers utilize an extremely expansive cluster of mathematical vignettes – frequently just a page or two long – to test into different parts of mathematics and the movement of doing mathematics so as to enlighten to the peruser the position they at last present; in particular, that mathematics involves a third philosophical class nearby those of physical reality and emotional reality.
For them, “mathematics is a target reality that is neither emotional nor physical. It is a perfect (i.e., nonphysical) reality that is objective (outer to the awareness of anybody individual).” This is unequivocally not Platonism (“mathematics isn’t the investigation of a perfect, previous nontemporal reality”); rather, mathematics is a free making of the brain, and they consider the significance of mathematics “is to be found in the common comprehension of people, not in an outside nonhuman reality”, and proceed to state “in this regard, mathematics is like a philosophy, a religion, or an artistic expression”.  It very well may be perused as a work of the human movement which includes mathematical examinations and disclosures (or would they say they are manifestations?).
A reasonable piece of mathematical information (student/graduate level) and some history of mathematics is suggested, and a comprehension of the way of thinking of mathematics and FOM would be useful if one needs to capitalize on this book. Be that as it may, anybody with aroused enthusiasm for mathematics should discover this book advantageous.

2. Rating 5/5

This book on history and theory is a decent prologue to a portion of all the more intriguing parts of the field. It has open thoughts that are awesome nonetheless. From Godel to Non-euclidian geometry, to Cantors numerous degrees of boundlessness, Group theory and mysteries and issues throughout the entire existence of mathematics. It additionally covers the way of thinking of mathematics as observed by somebody who works and shows the subject.
However, Entirely charming.
