KIRKUS REVIEW

The authors transmit an important message with great success, proving how ""postulational thinking"" can bring to human activity the moralizing influence of a truly scientific approach to reality. Combining their philosophies of art and science they make crystal clear some of the complexities of logical thinking and reveal in a dramatic way many of the fundamentals of mathematics from the major paradox of Euclidean geometry to ""metamathematics"". This ambitious effort to break through stereotypic thought patterns ought to be read seriously by young intelligent minds.
