"[A] book of great richness, as much for its examples as for its ideas, which keenly illustrate the development of knowledge across languages and epochs. It is a book to read and reread. Its subject is important; it is ours, it is our history." - Andre Clas, Meta: Journal des Traducteurs; "[T]his book... seems to stand alone on the shelf. A good thing, therefore, that it is so full of good things, both in the content and the prose." - William R. Everdell, MAA Online; "An impressive work.... By reminding us of the role of diverse cultures in the elevation of science within a particular nation or civilization, the book makes a substantial contribution to the postmodern worldview that emphasizes multiculturalism." - Choice --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
