The shaping of deduction in Greek mathematics : a study in cognitive history by Reviel Netz( Book )

24 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this book is to explain the shape of Greek mathematical thinking. It can be read on three levels: first as a description of the practices of Greek mathematics; second as a theory of the emergence of the deductive method; and third as a case-study for a general view on the history of science."--Jacket
Barbed wire : an ecology of modernity by Reviel Netz( Book )

The Archimedes palimpsest( Book )

12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Archimedes Palimpsest is the name given to a Byzantine prayer-book which was written over a number of earlier manuscripts, including two unique examples containing works by Archimedes, unquestionably the greatest mathematician of antiquity. Sold at auction in 1998, it has since been the subject of a privately funded project to conserve, image, and transcribe its texts. In this volume the scientists, conservators, classicists, and historians involved in the project discuss in full their techniques and their discoveries. These include new speeches by the classical Athenian orator Hyperides, a lost commentary on Aristotle's Categories from the second or third century AD, and substantial re-readings and reinterpretations of the works by Archimedes. The book discusses the pioneering imaging and post-processing techniques used to reveal the texts, and includes detailed codicological descriptions of all eight manuscripts comprising the Palimpsest. It will be of interest to manuscript scholars, classicists, and historians of science"--Provided by publisher

El código de Arquímedes : la verdadera historia del manuscrito que podría haber cambiado el rumbo de la ciencia by Reviel Netz( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El código de Arquímedes es una obra de no ficción que se lee como una novela, pues combina intriga, libros perdidos, y hallazgos de manuscritos al tiempo que nos ofrece unas revelaciones finales que reescriben la historia de las matemáticas y de la ciencia moderna. La obra escrita para todos los públicos, comienza relatando la trepidante subasta en Christie's donde se vendió el manuscrito perdido de Arquímedes, procedente probablemente de un robo. Dañados, incompletos y reescritos, los textos y dibujos de Arquímedes fueron encontrados entre las páginas de un libro de oraciones de un monje del siglo XIII. Gracias a la reconstrucción y conservación del pergamino se ha podido demostrar que el pensamiento de Arquímedes se adelantó incluso al de Isaac Newton. R. Netz y W. Noel siguen los pasos de este magnifico científico y nos introducen en un fascinante viaje en el tiempo a las ciudades de Sicilia, Alejandría y Constantinopla, entre otras. Lo poco que se conoce sobre este fascinante personaje se debe a la aparición de este importante documento que ha sido reutilizado a lo largo de la historia y que ha sufrido una serie de avatares que los autores irán reconstruyendo a lo largo del libro, para deleite de sus lectores
