The Episteme

  • Pietro Giuseppe FréEmail author


The present book is a conceptual history, namely it aims at tracing back the development of some fundamental ideas. Those addressed here are the ideas of Space and of Symmetry that lay the foundations of our present understanding of the Physical World and of its conceptualization in Geometry. Such a tale belongs to the history of Mathematics and Physics but also to the General History of Thought, namely of Philosophy.
