È possibile divulgare la matematica? La risposta è negativa o positiva, a seconda di quel che si intenda con l'espressione "divulgare la matematica". Non esistono infatti vie facili e brevi che permettano d'impossessarsi della matematica come tecnica; a tale scopo occorrono lunghi anni di costante e intelligente applicazione. Ma la matematica non è soltanto un "corpo scientifico separato, nè tanto meno un complesso di tecniche: teorie speciali e tecniche hanno a loro fondamento una impostazione di pensiero, che è d'interesse generale e non specialistico. L'autore di questo libro ha voluto illustrare gli sviluppi e le trasformazioni del pensiero matematico attraverso i secoli e i millenni, da Platone a Gauss, a Cantor, a Hilbert, a Godel, fino a giungere - nel modo più agevole e senza rinunciare al rigore - al "fronte di avanzata" della matematica contemporanea, soprattutto per quel che riguarda la logica (formalismo, problemi di decisione, matematica operativa). Meschkowski è riuscito a far diventare patrimonio del pensiero filosofico alcune importanti conquiste moderne e contemporanee del pensiero matematico. Tutto ciò ha ovviamente riflessi pedagogici: alla "formazione dell'uomo nell'epoca dell'automatizzazione" l'autore, uomo di fine e compiuta cultura umanistica, dedica il saggio conclusivo
