geometry

A Quote by Matila Ghyka on matila ghyka, geometry, art, geometry of life, and greek philosophy

There is a geometry of art as there is a geometry of life, and, as the Greeks had guessed, they happen to be the same.

A Quote by David Berlinski on logic, system, geometry, euclid, math, and structure

The world of shapes, lines, curves, and solids is as varied as the world of numbers, and it is only our long-satisfied possession of Euclidean geometry that offers us the impression, or the illusion, that it has, that world, already been encompassed in a manageable intellectual structure. The lineaments of that structure are well known: as in the rest of life, something is given and something is gotten; but the logic behind those lineaments is apt to pass unnoticed, and it is the logic that controls the system.
