Science Writer, Jason Socrates Bardi, talks about "Calculus Wars" and "Fifth Postulate" at Reiter's Books

Science writer Jason Socrates Bardi tells the tale of what happened when, in the early 1800s, three great mathematicians, working independently, came to the same profound conclusion. Discarding this postulate after 2,000 years of following it thus opened an entire new universe of non-Euclidian geometry, in which the recognition that space is curved solved scores of previously insolvable problems and laid the groundwork for a host of new discoveries to come.
