Das Undenkbare denken: Die Rezeption der nichteuklidischen by Klaus Volkert

By Klaus Volkert

Das Buch behandelt die Rezeptionsgeschichte der nichteuklidischen Geometrie im Zeitraum von 1860 bis 1900. Dabei werden die historischen und institutionellen Rahmenbedingungen dargestellt; breiten Raum nehmen die philosophischen, wissenschaftstheoretischen und didaktischen Diskussionen um die neue Geometrie ein. Zahlreiche Originaltexte - viele davon speedy unbekannt - werden vorgestellt. Ein Fokus liegt auf der Verbreitung der nichteuklidischen Geometrie in breiteren Kreisen wie z. B. der Mathematiklehrerschaft.
