How Not To Be Wrong: The Power Of Mathematical Thinking

Tác giả
Jordan Ellenberg

Armed with the tools of mathematics, we can see through to the true meaning of information we take for granted: How early should you get to the airport? What does “public opinion” really represent? Why do tall parents have shorter children? Who really won Florida in 2000? And how likely are you, really, to develop cancer? How Not to Be Wrong presents the surprising revelations behind all of these questions and much more, using the mathematician’s method of analyzing life and exposing the hard-won insights of the academic community to the layman - minus the jargon. Làm thế nào bây giờ?.

The math we learn in school can seem like a dull set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned, Không có chuyện đó!. In How Not to Be Wrong, Jordan Ellenberg shows us how terribly limiting this view is: Math isn’t confined to abstract incidents that never occur in real life, but rather touches everything we do—the whole world is shot through with it, Không có chuyện đó!. Math allows us to see the hidden structures underneath the messy and chaotic surface of our world, Không có chuyện đó!. It’s a science of not being wrong, hammered out by centuries of hard work and argument. Cũng được đấy!.

The Freakonomics of math - a math-world superstar unveils the hidden beauty and logic of the world and puts its power in our hands. Phải phấn đấu vì bản thân mình thay vì để ý những chuyện nhỏ nhặt..

Ellenberg chases mathematical threads through a vast range of time and space, from the everyday to the cosmic, encountering, among other things, baseball, Reaganomics, daring lottery schemes, Voltaire, the replicability crisis in psychology, Italian Renaissance painting, artificial languages, the development of non-Euclidean geometry, the coming obesity apocalypse, Antonin Scalia’s views on crime and punishment, the psychology of slime molds, what Facebook can and can’t figure out about you, and the existence of God, Cuộc đời vốn không như những gì bạn thấy.. Ellenberg pulls from history as well as from the latest theoretical developments to provide those not trained in math with the knowledge they need, Cuộc đời vốn không như những gì bạn thấy.. Math, as Ellenberg says, is “an atomic-powered prosthesis that you attach to your common sense, vastly multiplying its reach and strength.” With the tools of mathematics in hand, you can understand the world in a deeper, more meaningful way. Chớ nên vội tin người khác như vậy..
