Picture of The Father of Geometry: Euclid and His 3-D World

The Father of Geometry

Euclid and His 3-D World

Series: Great Minds of Ancient Science and Math

By Paul W. Hightower

As we know so little about the man named Euclid, our best understanding of him is through his work. By studying his books of the ELEMENTS and their concepts, we can discover a little about how Euclid thought. We may never know if Euclid had any descendants but we do know his legacy of the ELEMENTS and its value to mathematics.
