Description
Calvin Clawson has a unique talent for opening the door, for the uninitiated, to the splendors of mathematics. In this captivating quest for pure knowledge, he takes us on a journey to the amazing discoveries of our ancient ancestors. He divulges the wisdom of the ancient Greeks, Sumerians, Babylonians, and Egyptians, whose stunning revelations have deep meaning to this day.

The secrets of the constellations, the enigma of the golden mean, and the brilliance of a proof are just some of the breakthroughs Clawson explores with unbridled delight. Enabling us to appreciate the achievements of Newton and other intellectual giants is his singular talent. But he takes us one step further. Clawson inspires us through his eloquence and zeal to actually do mathematics. Transporting us beyond an appreciation, he urges us to leap to the next level. He helps us intuitively comprehend and follow the very building blocks of the stately but mysterious edifices that too long have been forbidden, including infinity, functions, and the limit. By accompanying him on this journey, we taste the fruit of knowledge that has eluded us until now.

Mathematical Sorcery is Clawson's greatest work. By trusting in his intuitive approach, we sample the sumptuous delights of the greatest minds in the history of civilization.
