This book is a textbook on mathematics from around the year I don’t think I agree with Nicomachus about the Nature of God but wow, he discovered some amazing patterns and relationships with numbers.
If you are interested even remotely in the mystical, Pythagorean properties of numbers, or even a little bit in just arithmetic in general, then this book is definitely for you.
It’s THAT kind of book.
It’s also nice to be familiar with a few Euclidean definitions. Arithmeric strange little book that opens a window onto an even stranger way of viewing the universe.
This “Arithmetic” is harder than I thought it would be, and I was a Math major. Not at all what one might expect, but reading it one can easily see how the Ancients attributed all the mystical properties to numbers. Most of his thoughts about philosophy are outside the scope of this book, but the Introduction will occasionally allude to them.
