**Mathematical Philosophy: A Study of Fate and Freedom**

by Cassius Jackson Keyser

**Publisher**: E.P. Dutton & company 1922**Number of pages**: 490

**Description**:

Though the course is designed primarily for students whose major interest is in Philosophy, I venture to hope that the lectures may not be ungrateful to a much wider circle of readers and scholars who desire to acquire a fair understanding of such genuinely great mathematical ideas as are accessible to all educated laymen and to come thus into touch with the universal spirit of the science which Plato called divine.
