      Now, my friend, presumably you believe in something, if only the theorems of mathematics, if you are a mathematician. If we define "God" as simply that which we believe in, then, then, not only is God a mathematician, but, mathematics is, indeed, God. From the perspective of a mathematician, of course. 'Is God a Mathematician?' explores the philosophical status of mathematics. The underlying question for much of the book is: is math a human invention or is it a reality (or for Pythagoras, the real Reality) that mathematicians explore and within which they make discoveries.

      God uses the language of Mathematics to create rhythms, patterns, proportion, symmetry and coordination. Mathematics is the tool to understand the lanuguage of Universe. "Is God a mathematician? In his new book Mario Livio delves into this question, putting it into a scientific, historical and philosophical context. He steers skillfully through deep and tricky waters, but writes with clarity and ease Read the book and decide for yourself what the answer is."Format: Ebook.
