The Golden Section: Nature's Greatest Secret

Brand: Bloomsbury USA   |   Status: Hết hàng

"This is one of the very best volumes in the Wooden Books series, which is the best book series I can think of. Of course a text this size on a subject this large is going to be limited in scope, but all the the most important aspects of the golden section are hit upon. If you think you are being ripped off because there are other books on Phi that are much longer, think again - this is quality over quantity. What really impresses are the fine print and the notes in the back, which have a great deal of information and some of the better commentary on the esoteric nature of Plato's work, brief though they are, that I have seen. I like that the author seems to have a passion for this work, which enlivens what is a rather dull subject if handled in the wrong way." - Amazon Reviewer

A concise and useful handbook on the Golden Section--also known as the Golden Ratio and Golden Mean. The Golden Section is a line segment divided into two parts, such that the ratio of the short portion to the longer portion is equal to the ratio of the longer portion to the whole. It is one of the most elegant and beautiful ratios of the mathematical universe because of its combination of elegance and simplicity--hence the divine nature of its name. Drawing on art, architecture, philosophy, nature, mathematics, geometry, and music--and beautifully illustrated in the Wooden Books fashion with all manner of images--The Golden Section will tell the story of this remarkable construction and its wide ranging impact on civilization and the natural world.
