Is God a Mathematician?
Hessa Al Thani's review
Jan 13, 2017
For those who are thrown off by the title, the book mainly addresses the questions of why mathematics is so effective at modeling reality and whether mathematics was invented or discovered. It's a great read that shows many persuasive examples of the applications of mathematics. It also fleshes out the philisophical discussion of whether mathematics is invented or discovered really well, bringing in many mathematicians and philosophers ideas to the table. My favorite part was when the author was reflecting on whether that was the right framing of the discussion and eventually entertained the possibility of how mathematics is both invented and discovered.
