This book has presented an overview of Mario Pieri’s life and research and a deeper study of the background of his work in foundations of geometry and arithmetic. With complete translations and detailed analyses for two of his notable papers—one in each of those areas—this book has paid particular attention to Pieri’s constructions of Euclidean geometry and of the natural number system. The second book of the present series will focus on Pieri’s research in foundations of absolute and projective geometry, and expose his views on logic and the philosophy of science. The third and final book will describe his contributions to algebraic geometry and related subjects.
