18. Euclid (fl. 300 BC)

Original language: Greek.

I skimmed Elements.

It’s amazing that the geometry I studied in high school, and is still studied today, is basically this book by Euclid. Though slightly different terminology is used today.

A general thought

It’s really interesting, now that I have gone from 1400 BC to 300 BC, how I’ve gone from crazy beliefs to beliefs and thoughts very like ours. The ancient Greeks would recognize our world.
