Mathematicians Of The Day

27th December


Quotation of the day

From Johannes Kepler
Geometry, which before the origin of things was coeternal with the divine mind and is God himself (for what could there be in God which would not be God himself?), supplied God with patterns for the creation of the world, and passed over to Man along with the image of God.
The Harmony of the World (Linz,1619), Book IV, Ch. 1. Trans. E. J. Aiton, A. M. Duncan, and J. V. Field (1997), 304.
