Some Books on Mathematical Analysis

  • Understanding Analysis, 2nd edition, by Stephen Abbott
  • Complex Variables, 2nd edition, by Robert Ash
  • Measure and Category, 2nd edition, by John Oxtoby

These have a similar style which I admire. By the way, I’m a Platonist insofar as I agree with his advice that studying mathematics is an essential preliminary to philosophy. There aren’t many Platonists in this sense.

On the other hand, I think technology is very important and clearly the most important technology is language. The language experts are not the philosophers but the poets.
